Where do I save my aliaseses'..aliasi?

I made an alias to mount my Win2k partion:alias mntwin='mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /windows' , but I cant make it stick when I reboot. I've tried saving it to /etc/bashrc and /root/bashrc, but neither has worked. Any help? BTW, please give me an example so I know what it looks like. I use pico as my file editor.....Oh, and how can I get the mounted partiton to automatically mount upon reboot? I tried editing the /etc/fstab file, but it didnt work. This is more or less what my fstab edit looks like..

/mnt/hda1 /mnt/hda1 vfat user,auto,rw 0 0

I'm not in Linux now, so I cant be exact.:smash:

Your fstab file line should look like this:

/dev/hda1 /windows vfat user,auto,rw 0 0

/dev/hda1 being the device to mount, in this case first ide device on first ide controller(a) and first partition on disk(1).

/windows being the directory in your filesystem tree you whant to mount your windows partition. Remember to make the directory before trying to mount it, mkdir /windows
