    HD installation and /dev/hdaN


    knoppix uses the media management for other partitions

    what is to do to declare one partition to be monted automaticaly by start (so the windows main partition in vfat in my case /dev/hda2) ?

    To mount a partition automatically you use the "auto" option in the filesystem table.
    You need to post the output of:

    fdisk -l

    cat /etc/fstab

    then someone can answer your question completely.


    /dev/hda1 ntfs /mount/winxp auto,users,exec,umask=022 0 0

    would mount the first hard drive ntfs partition at mount point /media/winxp with read permissions
    for any user who is a member of the group users
