hey guys, its been a long time but i finally got around to re-installing
ubuntu on my laptop. i must say, the latest install of dapper xubuntu went
so smoothly i was almost insulted. wireless just worked, my usb cd rom
drive just worked and the install process itself was stupid easy. so thanks
to the dev guys for that!
i have run into one problem. before the install i started with four
partitions because im dual booting with winblowz (school stuff requires it
=\). so i have an ntfs partitions for my windows system files, a fat32
partition for sharing data between linux and windows, and naturally one swap
and one ext3 partition.
so during the xubuntu install i specified my various partitions and i
thought i specified my share partition but may be i didnt. i thought i told
xubuntu to mount the partition at /share...
so im assuming that means i should be able to find the data on that drive at
/share from the terminal....but /share doesnt exist. i checked all my
mounted partitions by reading /etc/fstab:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda3 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
notice my fat32 partition isnt listed. so im just wondering what to do
next. how do i found my fat32 partition (i dont know what it would be
referred to as in /dev/hda*) and then how would i have it mount
automatically at boot?
thanks in advance for the help!
