hda1 and fstab - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hello, I want to mount my fat32 (hda1) on bootup. What do i do? Place my hda1 in /dev/fstab? What is the command line to do this. If i done this, do i have to mount this drive each time i want to reach it? Why does redhat recognize my cd and floppy automatic, and my hda1 and usb memory stick not? Thank you for help. Frenk...

    Default hda1 and fstab

    Hello,

    I want to mount my fat32 (hda1) on bootup. What do i do?
    Place my hda1 in /dev/fstab? What is the command line to do this.

    If i done this, do i have to mount this drive each time i want to reach
    it? Why does redhat recognize my cd and floppy automatic, and my hda1
    and usb memory stick not? Thank you for help.

    in /etc/fstab add a line:

    /dev/hda1 /mnt/fat32 vfat auto,users,rw,exec 1 1


    99% it will work... 1% taken out is bad luck, which I do have some times

    sorry I didn't reply to the whole message before:

    to edit the /etc/fstab file do in the tty, pico -w /etc/fstab

    for the line I told you to add in /etc/fstab to work, make sure that
    there IS a directory in /mnt called fat32

    probably dont want to do this; if not '0', they should
    at least be a '2' (last field), '0' for fifth
