you need to edit your /etc/fstab file.

Say you have one partition on that disk that is FAT32 and you want to mount it at /windows you would add a line like this:

/dev/hdd1 /windows vfat defaults 0 0

For more information and a list of all the arguments do a man fstab.

first make a folder somewhere, where u want to mount ur partition say
u want to mount ur hda5 in a dir. at /mnt/e
so create a dir in /mnt and name it 'e'
then in ur fstab add this line
/dev/hda5 /mnt/e auto defaults 0 0
after u reboot ur system u will find ur hda5 in /mnt/e
