I think one of the problems is that you are probably not a native English
speaker. Technical communities like this mailing list use English as their
lingua franca. Perhaps you should see if there is a mailing list in your
own language. For example, I am from Belgium, where we have 3 official
languages: Dutch, French and German. (English is only my third language
after French and shame on me, I hardly speak any German).
I can choose between the following mailing lists:

ubuntu-nl  Dutch support (mostly people from the Netherlands)
ubuntu-fr  French support (mostly people from France)
ubuntu-de  German support (mostly people from Germany)
ubuntu-be  No support, but local Ubuntu-related activities in Belgium like
release parties. Mostly in English, but every two weeks or so there is a
language discussion. Don't ask, it's political. ;-)

So it could just be a simple matter of adding the right lines to
/etc/fstab. Shouldn't be too hard. It's just 1 minute work.

What do you do now to mount temporarily? Please reply in detail. The more
detail you give, the better we can help you to help yourself.

Now *you* are just abusive.
I'm not interested in who started it. Let's finish it here and now, ok?
