    Mounting from the command line

    So I was thinking about making a batch file that automatically mounts my Windows 7 partition when I start up. While I can use the disk mounter to put the drive on my desktop, and then unmount it:
    Code:
    sudo umount /media/C:
    trying to mount it using the same form I get an error:
    Code:
    sudo mount /media/C:
    mount: can't find /media/C: in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
    How do I mount my partition from the command line?

    I think you can't mount it the same way because it does not yet exist by that name until it is mounted. Just do a google search for ways to auto mount it. Here is one of many involving a GUI program:
