Post login mounting


My boot time is severely extended by whining about "bad file names" on one of my fat32 drives. My question is how to write a shellscript that mounts the drive and to make that shellscript run every time I log in.

Here is the line in my /etc/fstab:
Code:
UUID=485D-7E09  /mnt/Teh_Disk   vfat    utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0       1
Thanks in advance.

Why a shell script upon login? Just setup AutoFS so it only mounts it automatically when needed!
