    How mount HD in 8.04

    I moved 4 HHD on an ATA-card to a new Ubuntu 8.04 machine. The are in a NFS network. I have called them 280GB_C, 280GB_D, 280GB_E and 100GB_F from before Dapper and to Hardy. Now when I tried to mount them from Desktop on the disks mounted on the desktop, by right-click -->Properties -->Volume. And fill out a new mountpoint in my homedirectory. (/home/Azyx/280GB_C corrensponding to the disk. Also make folder on that place.

    After reboot i get the message "Cannot mount the volume"

    -details:
    "mounting_point cannot contain the following charter: newline, G_DIR_SEPARATOR (usually /)"

    How fix it now? I can't get 'Property' on the disk cos they are not mounted anymore.

    I have booth ext3 and reiserfs on the disks.

    Edit: I think the problem is the name on the disks. 280GB_X, the underline. But where can i change it? There are nothing in fstab or mtab about the mounting point.

    /Cheers

    Have you actually made the mountpoint folders in your home to mount them to? If not they will not mount, and you can not make such a folder by using the Properties->Volume tab, you will have to do it by either right clicking on the parent folder and choosing "Create Folder" or in terminal
    Code:
    mkdir /home/Azyx/280GB_C
    I don't think the underscore should be a problem at all in file or folder names, so forget about that; in fact it is always worth using an underscore rather than a space in a name, as it makes life easier when using pathways in terminal.

    Yes. I know that and have also mkdir for all 4 disks If that was the problem the message should be something like ..missing mounting point or so...

    I thougt the GUI preferens maybe write the mounting point in fstab or so...but I can't find it there. Maybe I heve type some wrong, but I can't find what I wrote
