How can I mount my secondary hard drive on boot?

I just switched from Mandrake 10.0 to Pro Mepis and I have to keep mounting my secondary hard drive manually by opening a terminal, logging into root and running "mount /dev/hdb1"

How do I set it up so that it automatically mounts that hard drive on boot?

Mounting at boot happens with /etc/fstab. Add the drive to this list in a similar manner as your other partitions.
