Havn't been able to usr my machine all day the power is off yet again! Living in devon is like living in a third world country, I been to palces in africa that have more reliable power supplies.

At 1st glance it looks doable so I am going to work thru and see what works and hopefully report back positively, in the meantime thanks everyone for the help and tips.

Code:
/dev/sdc1    /mnt/hd    vfat    users,auto,x-gvfs-show,x-gvfs-name=USB    0  0
Make sure the mount point exists, and it should mount and show up on the desktop at boot. This is the "proper" way of doing what you want.

rworkman (a Slackware dev) figured this one out, so thank him
Perfect!

Accidentally installed 2.21rc1 and system wouldn't boot, lets hear it for PartedMagic! After a bit of jigory pokery got the proper version installed and after a sneak peak at the official slackbuild wrote a quick script to do some post install stuff (symlinks mainly) and presto! a working system and my disk mounted at login and on the desktop just like i wanted.

A BIG thanks to apeitheo and rworkman you are the bees knees, the wasps nipples and possibly all the erogenous zones of every major European flying insect!
