If this is a drive that is new/ has nothing on it and you want to add it to the system follow this howto.

If the drive is already partitioned and has a file system on it and you just want to mount it on a temporary bases, find the root partition of the drive in mention like so. As #root in a terminal type fdisk -l this will list all drives your kernel sees. Lets say it comes up sdc3 then do this.

commands as root.

mkdir /mnt/temp

mount /dev/sdc3 /mnt/temp

Then after your done and want to un-mount the drive make sure your not within the /mnt/temp directory then type the command.

umount /dev/sdc3 /mnt/temp

For mounting at boot time, edit the file


add entries in the following format

<partition> <mount point> <file system> <options> <options> <options>

/dev/sdc3 /mnt/tmp ext3 defaults 0 0
