How do I activate my sdb5 partition and have it stay active continually.

I think I screwed up.  I opened the GUI  to look at the partitions in 
Disk&Filesystems.  I expected to find sda1 with a mount point of 
/media/sda1.  It showed as /media/sdb1 instead of /media/sda1.  I then 
opened the Konsole and entered sudo kedit /media/sdb2  to try to get to 
that error.  This is what came on the Konsole:

steven at Studio25:~$ sudo kedit /media/sdb1
[sudo] password for steven:
Error: "/tmp/kde-steven" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.

kedit opened to a blank page and in the title bar it reads /media/sdb1 - 
KEdit <2>, like I have two KEdit windows open.

I want to go back and edit the mount point as /media/sda1.
