Mount a second Hard drive

I can mount a second drive with "mount /dev/hdb1 /path" but when i reboot i have to manually go run that command again. Now i only reboot the box about once every 3 weeks cuz of changing hardware but I'd like to know what to edit to not have to do this everytime,
Thanks people

Re: Mount a second Hard drive

edit /etc/fstab:

/dev/hdb1 /path ext3 auto,user,umask=022 0 0

replace ext3 with filesystem type. man fstab to see other options.

making a hard drive device icon will make mounting "easier" by allowing you to right click and then choose mount but if you want it to happen every time you boot up just add it to /etc/fstab.
