xubuntu server refuses to auto mount spare hard drive
I built and xubuntu headless server a few months back. I have a 40G drive to hold xubuntu and another 400G drive to back up that drive to, as well as two other computers.
My problem is with the 400G drive. Whenever I restart the server I have to mount the drive all over again. I've edited the fstab file numerous times using every technique I could Google. I've also used a few of the GUI type disk managers and haven't had the first bit of luck either way.
I did notice that the first drive is listed as sda1 and my cdrom as sda2. When I formatted the 400G drive, I did it as one big partition and it only shows up as sdb. I can mount and write to it just fine. I'm thinking this might have something to do with why it won't auto mount, but I don't know for sure.
Does it have to be sdb1 for it to work? And if so, how do I get it to do that? Will I have to reformat the drive into two parititions?
