    Hi - A common problem which we've all faced. Please read this.

    Let us know how you get on. If you have to edit fstab it's just a question of becoming root, opening the file in a text editor of your choice and saving it. No need to reboot as far as I remember.

    Be aware that if you add a line like:
    Code:
    /dev/sda4 /mnt/usbzip vfat noauto,user 0   0
    you'll need to actually create the directory called /mnt/usbzip. Ages since I created a directory! Errr I think it's mkdir /mnt/usbzip

    Then do mount /dev/sda4 or whatever you need for your own system.
    I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
