Mounting a Second Hard Drive at Startup


Good Evening All,

I have finally managed to get access to my second hard drive after a struggle.

It's sda (sda5) Ext3 mounted at /Storage I have ownership of it as jim. I'm the only user of the computer.

How do I get it to mount at startup?

(PCLinuxOS 2009-2 KDE3)

Regards,

Cheemag.

Welcome to LQ
You can add the drive to /etc/fstab

Thanks. I'll have a look at the format of fstab and see if I can add it to the file,

It isn't very important as I find I can use the drive quite easily in the GUI.

Regards,
