i think the correct way is to put an entry in /etc/fstab.

there are a few ways to skin this cat.
for the system to do it automatically, i would put it in /etc/rc.local.
for the user to do it once logged in you can put it in ~/.bash_profile.
some newer distros support a @reboot directive in the users crontab.

No need for a script. Disk mounting is configured in the /etc/fstab file.

A google search on fstab configuration should turn up all the info you need. Good luck!
