drive mounted
 
hello linux guru's

I was wondering I just installed 10.0 Official. I have a 2nd HDD installed in my computer and I assume that it is mounted incorrectly since I have a mounted drive on my desktop that is not pointing any where at all. It just says /dev/hd

so here is my fstab:

dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda6 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
none /mnt/hd supermount dev=/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/part1,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,kudzu,codepage=850 0 0


also here is my fdisk info:

Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80060424192 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9733 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 764 6136798+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 765 9733 72043492+ 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 765 827 506016 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda6 828 9733 71537413+ 83 Linux

Disk /dev/hdb: 120.0 GB, 120060444672 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14596 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 1 14596 117242338+ 42 SFS

If you can help me in getting this mounted correctly and also making sure it gets mounted everytime I boot that would be awesome.

Thanks for your time,

you're going to want to put an entry in your fstab which looks a little like this:


/dev/hdbX /path/to/mount/point fstype defaults 1 2

Where X is the partition number, IE: /dev/hdb1 (you can leave it off too, if you dont want to partition /dev/hdb),
/path/to/mount/point is the mount point, IE: /mnt/hdb (note if the mount point doesnt exist, you have to create it yourself),
and fstype is the filesystem type (you _did_ format it, right?).

man fstab for details

yes it is already formatted in NTFS which I forgot to mention sorry. so it would look something like this?

/dev/hdb /mnt/hdb ntfs defaults 1 2

if this is correct thank you and I will try it as soon as it is confirmed.

Will I have to reboot to make it go into effect?

Thanks once agian for your time and help
