Hi all,

I have a debian linux box that I'm wanting to be able to auto mount an external hard drive.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hey mgonullu,

That's pretty slick.  I've always used the fstab file, which is a major problem if it can't find the devices on boot, causing me to have to boot in root mode and edit the file when that happens.

I read the link info, followed up with other references, and now I agree.  Dear Asker, the above answer is probably the best way to do this.  It works in SUSE no problem.  I'm adding this answer to my knowledgebase.
