Fantastic guide, by the way. Some of it is far above my tiny dinosaur brain, but learning and experimenting is fun. Here's my deal.
(1) New HD (2nd drive used as a backup device);
(2) Got it mounted (I think); it shows up in Nautilus; however,
(3a) If I do a sudo mount -a command, it returns, "mount point /media/bak/ does not exist"; also,
(3b) I do not have permission to create folders, copy files to it, etc.
Here's my current fstab file, which is ugly, I know:
How do I gain full permission to the sdb1 drive for everything?# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
