Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i don't know because for 1 i have no idea what device you want to add, number 2 i dont' know what kind of permissions you want set, and number 3 i don't know where your mount point is and finally 4, i dont' know what kind of filesystem it is...
but other than all the things i dont know, you can just follow how other things are typed in that file:
for instance if you have a cdrom device you may see something like:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
it may not be the same but it will be similiar to that
so by looking at it you see the first column contains the device the second column contains the mount point, the third column contains the filesystem type, and the fourth column contains the options, i am not explaining the last 2 numbers but just for a secondary you can leave these at 0 0 ....
thats all i can really tell ya cause as i said i have no information about the drive, so if you still can't follow these steps, then if you want you can post the answers to the questions i don't know, and either me or someone else can give you the entry you should make, or just post what you think the entry should be and someone can confirm it
