So, if the USB drive does not automount at boot with the USB drive in the slot, get the device and mount location and add it to /etc/fstab.  I don't recall whether webmin offers the option of updating the file system table.

If it doesn't, copy /etc/fstab to /etc/fstab.orig and modify /etc/fstab and test out the results with a reboot while the USB drive is in the slot.

Thanks, so what device details should I put in /etc/fstab?

With the USB drive in the slot, do a:

# df | grep -i usb

That's the info that you put in /etc/fstab.

Caveat:  I haven't tried that and I don't know if the mount point changes.
