Second Hard Drive issue

OK, some googling and a leap of faith and maybe Stefan gave me the hint.

I googled "fstab" and found an Ubuntu page that explains things fairly 
simply. The leap of faith was in attempting to edit it. I normally don't 
diddle around in the nuts and bolts of the system. I don't know what I'm 
doing but I can sometimes copy and paste with some good results.

I learned that the funny number was the uuid of the drive. Simple enough 
once you know what it is. The "path" to that drive and my files is/was 
media/bilie0w/"uuid"/Billie0W/. All my files are under the "Billie0W" 
directory(?) so I set the mount point as "Billie0W". It returned a file 
system of "ext2" so I added that and made the other options 0 and 0.

The new line in fstab now reads:

UUID=5ec13406-3b24-42a6-be83-89871af43dee Billie0W ext2 auto 0 0

I'm praying I didn't trash my system. I didn't touch anything else in 
there. Keep your fingers crossed.

Fast is fine, but accuracy is final.
