I've been trying to get my 2nd internal hdd to mount, and so far it seems I'm getting closer to where I want to be. The partition shows up as it's own drive on my desktop, however when i read a file from it (ie play a video in movie payer, or scan for music in rhythmbox), it locks/freezes the system completely. I'm forced to do a hard restart.
I've partioned the drive as ext3 and changed the file permissions to 770.
fstab included below (sdb5 is the partition)
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
