    /ect/fstab/ doesn't exist


    Hey mates, I'm new to Linux, and I came across a problem after my ubuntu 5.10 install.

    I'm trying to mount my fat32 and NTFS drives, but there isn't an /fstab/ folder, and I can't seem to be able to create one. How do I go about creating the file?

    Thanks

    There IS an fstab file, otherwise your system wouldn't even boot.

    Do not confuse folders like /etc/ with files like /etc/fstab. If you type in a terminal e.g.

    cat /etc/fstab

    I am pretty sure that the system will list your fstab files contents. For editing the file, launch

    sudo gedit /etc/fstab

    Instead of gedit you can use any other editor you like, e.g. vim, nano, emacs, ...
