It is not very hard to do, once you get the hang of it:
Here is a vanilla example with some further references for reading.
Things that you need to know in advance are:
The files system type , ext3,xfs,vfat etc.
The access options you wish to grant to the users
The name of the device , /dev/sdxN /dev/hdxN etc.
Assume the following for this vanilla example:
Device = /dev/hdxN
Filesystem = FAT32
Mountpoint = /mnt/disk1
Options = read/write available to all users,files system will not be backed up or checked
You need to create a mount point for each drive. This is really a separate directory for each device [drive] you want to mount.
creates a mount point named /mnt/disk1
Then to manually mount the drive
mount -t vfat /dev/hdxN /mnt/disk1
This will mount /dev/hdxN at the location /mnt/disk1 with system default options only.
To automate the mounting of this drive you can add an entry to your /etc/fstab file
/dev/hdxN /mnt/disk1 vfat users,defaults,umask=000 0 0
In addition to the options laid out it the mount MAN Page , there are some FC specific options, which you can read more about here : http://forum.fedoraforum.org/showthr...ighlight=Mount
When you reboot the system the device [/dev/hdxN]will be mounted at /mnt/disk1 during the boot process.
