    Automatically. You mean on startup?

    That doesn't tell us much. A better command to use is "sudo fdisk -lu" (lowercase L, not a one). That will list out the partitions on your drive.

    Also, if you are sharing a PC between Win7 and Ubuntu, I would advise strongly AGAINST auto-mounting the Win7 OS partition during startup. This is an easy way to end up corrupting the Win7 OS partition and rendering it unbootable.

    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    formerly, I had vista but I deleted that partition and installed Ubuntu instead of it. so two of my none-system drives are in ntfs. what do u suggest for mounting them automatically in startup?

    and this is my fstab file:

    proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
    UUID=2673d4b5-31cb-4f8a-8374-0b189b1b0602 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
    UUID=eee99285-60cf-4f36-8840-1f3c2e43e464 none swap sw 0 0



    now what do you suggest?
