Simple questions with SuSE


Two quick questions-

1)how do i make something 'automount' at boot?

2) Alot of programs start up when i boot - how do i get rid of them (/root/.kde/autostart/ is empty??)

And for "pro's" please check out my other port "LNE100TX and SuSE 9"

Thanks Alot

As root,
cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab_origionalversionincaseImessup
vim /etc/fstab

look, for example, at my automounted Mandrake partitions.
/dev/hdb6 /MDrakeUser auto auto,user,exec 0 0
now look at my floppy line
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto noauto,user,sync 0 0

find the line with what you want to mount, and change the noauto to auto.

KDE will remember what applications you have running when you exit. So, if you have OpenOffice, Mozilla, etc running when you exit, they will get restarted when you log in. Before I shut down, I just got into the habit of closing apps, or just doing
shutdown -h now
when I couldn't be bothered. Doesn't go throught the KDE save desktop part. :-)
