Hi Wade I put a line in my /etc/fstab file that mounts a partition
on my second hard drive to the first with Ubuntu on it This looks like:
karl at karl-desktop:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

The /dev/hda7 hooking to my /f7home directory is what I want. Now that
partition on my computer is always /f7home/filename/.
