Mounting the lazy way (Windows and Linux File Systems)

Imagine… You just bought a new hard drive. And you want to mount it with FSTAB so it will be mounted every boot up. But your too lazy to understand FSTAB. I approve your lazy life stile like I am used to be. And here I will tell you an great secret from the lazy “Ubuntu” trolls. Keep in mind I would advice you to mount your hard drives manually. For now I will show you the lazy way.

Open the “Terminal”

Perform the following commands:

First step we download the DUTCH script for mounting disks.

$ wget http://media.ubuntu-nl.org/scripts/diskmounter

For Debian users become root!

$ su -p

Now lets mount all your hard drives with 1 single command. (For ubuntu users add “sudo” in the beginning of the line!)

# bash diskmounter

Now awnser 1 or 2 questions. And let him mount your drives.

No reboot is required since it automatically mount & chown your drives!
