Mount Harddrive on Start

What would I need to do to run the command "mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb1 /mnt/quantum" on startup so that it will be ready to go when I need it? As you can see, I am a newbie and I have figured out many things but not how to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you can try this:

edit /etc/fstab and put this at the end:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/quantum ext3 default 0 0

or something similar, depending on your file systems and whatnot.
