    Hi leo5111 - good to hear from you again ... you are probably better off starting a new thread with a good description rather than tagging it onto this one ... I don't think the issues are really related. Someone was after some help on a avi to dvd script ... so you might want to search for that on the forums.

    If you have forgotten the root password then use recovery mode option from the grub menu at boot time. This gives root access without a password ... then you can use passwd to set the password you want.

    Your better off using sudo, if you get lazy then use sudo -s means you only enter the password and type sudo once for each terminal session (or until you type exit). Use gksu in GUI to run individual applications with root access.

Right click the volume again and select mount from the pop up menu.

    Press alt+f2 and type
    Code:
    gedit /etc/mtab
    this will open mtab in gedit ... the last line should be /dev/sdb5 /media/sdb5 ......

    Press alt+f2 again and type
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/fstab
    this will open fstab in gedit.

    Copy the last line in mtab and paste it as a new last line in fstab, save fstab and exit.

    Shutdown and restart the system and you should have sdb5 automatically mounted.
    used that in mint 4 it mounts drive and makes it accesable in mint 5, 64bit automounts but you cant put anything on it and says permissions not determinable in permissions tab not sure what im doing wrong i formatted a drive to ext3 primary partition then next boot mount it even before automount i looked in permissions tab, says cant determine permissions
