You need to add a line to /etc/fstab something like the following, where the /dev/hdx# x = the drive (a means the IDE master on channel 0, b slave on channel 0-, c master on channel 1 and so on), # is the partition. Since 98 gets grumpy if you don't put it on the first partition of the first drive, yours is almost definately /dev/hda1.

The second entry is the mount point. You'll have to create one... I sometimes use /win, this one its /c:

vfat is the filesystem type (both fat32 and fat16 in win-speak)

/dev/hda1 /c: vfat defaults 1 0

Cheers,

Finegan

automount!

thanks, but I did that already, I can mount the drive! but I wanted what you have to do to let the system mount the drive at startup instead of me typing the mount command everytime I boot!


thanks, lars.

/etc/fstab is read by one of the sysinit files in rc (depending on distro) on boot. If you have that line in /etc/fstab and the drive is not mounted after boot, then there is something else wrong.

Cheers,
