Where/how is the best way to have Linux automatically mount Novell volumes on start up?
Installed RH7.1. From the console I can use `ipx_configure --ipx_primary=on --ipx_auto_interface=on'
then i can use
`ncpmount -S [Novell Server Name] /mnt/novell -U [Novell User to login as] -n'
and it logs in and mounts the Netware volumes properly. I read in one howto that you should wait 10 seconds after  ipx_configure before running ncpmount. What is the recommended syntax and what script would this be best to add to or ? so this is part of the start up process? I am just getting started with Linux.
TIA for your help

You could put the commands in /etc/rc.d/rc.local . This is the last script to run in the RedHat boot process, and all you need to do is edit the file with your favourite text editor. You could just add the ipx_configure and ncpmount commands to the end of the rc.local script, and perhaps put a sleep 10 command aftert the ipx_configure to make the script pause for 10s before continuing.

Thanks.  Works great.
Just the kind of clarification I was hoping for. I had already used the ipx_configure in rc.local but wasn't sure how to do the delay or if that was the best place.
