Strange Mount After Clean Install of Feisty

Hi All,

I recently installed 7.04 (not upgraded) on my box.

I have two HDs - /dec/hda (or /dev/sda as it is mounted now) and /dev/hdc.

Both are IDE HDs. During the installation I told it to use the entire HDA
disk and expected to be asked about the mount points later. It didn't ask. I
had to manually add a line to mount my second disk (now /dev/sdc5) where all
my data is. I created a dir by the name of Data under the root fs (/Data)
and added a line similar to the one mounting the root fs (/) pointing to my
second HD.

Now I have a link on my desktop called "/home" and when I check it's
properties it shows up as mounted on /Data...

Looking at my /home/<username>/Desktop dir shows as empty...

Here's my /etc/fstab. The line I added is the last one. I don't know how to
find the UUID for my partition...

Is there a GUI way to mont it instead?


# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
