Do the USB drives not automount when the system is booted?

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.
