    What are the mountpoints for 2 Storage Drives


    This is the name of them,the mountpoint, and the fstab line

    I would like to know if all of these are correct and if so help me to correct them

    Also I have tried this on many forums but none have helped me yet
    I have posted here because I heard that people who use Slackware are very smart and know the most about it.

    Dell 64mb Usb Memory Key
    Mountpoint:/mnt/usb-key
    Fstabline:/dev/sdb1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 vfat noauto,users 0 0

    Maxtor120GB External Hardrive
    Mountpoint:/media
    Fstab Line:/dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-Y3KQ3YTE:0:0:0p1 reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1

    Also here is the fstab to help

    /dev/hda7 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
    /dev/hda2 /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
    /dev/hda6 swap swap pri=42 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
    /dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=ut f8 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy subfs fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,sync 0 0
    /dev/hda5 /mount/dev/hda5/mnt/1GB_native reiserfs auto,acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=ut f8 0 0

    Well, looking at your fstab file, it seems that both your USB key and your external hard drive are going too be mounted to the same place i.e. you may not be able to access both devices at the same time.

    Change the fstab file to something like this for the usb:
    /dev/sdb1 /media/usb_pen vfat,rw,noauto,users 0 0

    and for the external hard drive to :
    /dev/sda1 /media/external_drive reiserfs,rw,noauto,users 0 0

    Are you refering to the mountpoint or the fstab line

    he's refering to both, you need both to create the actual mountpoint using the names described such as usb-pen, and then point to them using fstab, two devices can't share the same mountpoint, after that it's a simple case of mounting them

    Should I add those lines in the fstab also or just leave them the way it is.
