Hi all,

I recently moved from windows XP to ubuntu, so I'm still having some
problems figuring out how to do things here.

I have 2 HDs on my computer, one of them (the small one) is where ubuntu is
installed and the other (the large one) is where I intend to save my
personal files.
I used to do that on windows, just to separate my personal files (music,
videos, college files, etc) from the OS and I wanted to keep doing that on
linux too. The problem is that the large hard disk is not getting auto
mounted. When I open the file browser, I see it there, but I have to click
twice on it and enter the su pass to mount it. It is mounted on root group,
which is not really what I wanted.
Is there a way to configure ubuntu to auto mount this second hard disk when
I turn my computer on, and mount it on my group? If I can't mount it on my
personal group, at least I'd like to mount it with permission set to 7 for

thanks a lot for any help
