Hello. A while ago, I asked how to mount my fat 32 driver to windows and you guys told me to use "mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/c" after making the directory. It works fine.

I would like to know how to get it to mount automaticlly on startup though. It is very annoying to have to type that command in each time I log in.

/dev/hda1 /mnt/c vfat defaults 0 0
