I've already got that far (creating the /etc/fstab entry). The drive
is visible in the file manager, but isn't yet mountable...but will be
in 15 minutes. I see from the post by Rashkae that I needed to create
the mount point folder. That's what comes of being very tired when
doing this. [Homer Simpson voice...."doh!"] The obvious next step
was eluding me! Thanks anyway. BTW, no problems with reiser. All my
*nix drives are resier. Works like a champ. Sets up just like ext3.
