Auto-mounting partitions

The details of the partitions detected on the hard-disk is maintained in '/etc/fstab' file. Simply Mepis automatically detects the available partitions and adds them as dynamic entries in /etc/fstab. If you want to make that partition entry as static, you will have to move that entry above the line "# Dynamic entries below, identified by 'users' option" in '/etc/fstab/' file.

In order to auto-boot a parition, you will have to change 'noauto' to 'auto'. It is also a good idea to remove 'users' from the mount options so that only the superuser (root) can mount and un-mount partitions.
