View Full Version : [ubuntu] automount network drive

July 1st, 2009, 02:47 AM
hello, I am a long time windows user, and i'm trying to automount a lacie ethernet disk mini. I can see it and browse into it in my network folder but I would like it to mount automatically on startup. Also, in windows I could make the network drive a part of the system and rename it C:\\ for exemple, and i'd like to know if I can do something similar in ubuntu.

I'm running jaunty 9.04

Well I know you can do it by editing the fstab file and adding cif mounts to it, and here is an article with another method http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1186877&highlight=fstab+cifs

ok nice thanks for the quick answer, that seams to be exactly what i needed. Do I need to set up a samba server to use this method ?

You will need samba installed to get it working but I dont think the server side has to be up.
