Mounting FAT32 partition
 
Hey,

I've created a new FAT32 partition alongside my Windows NTFS partion and my linux partitions - but when I boot into Mandrake, only the NTFS partition shows up in the /mnt folder. Why isn't it mounting the FAT32 partition automatically, and how do I make it do it!?

A quick answer would be very greatly appreciated :)

You need to edit your /etc/fstab file and create a directory where it can be mounted. So, if you want to mount your partition at /mnt/fat, you would type in a console "mkdir /mnt/fat". For you fstab, it will be something like this.
/dev/hda4 /mnt/fat vfat noauto,user,rw 0 1

You wanted the partition to be mounted automatically, so remove 'noauto' from that line.
