    Please post the output of the contents of "/etc/fstab" file and the following command :
    Code:
    /sbin/fdisk -l
    The other option is to carefully read the documentation
    Chapter 3. Advanced Disk Setup

    Ok in order to have a partition auto mounted You need to have and fstab entry for each partition You want to mount at boot. Here's a quick tutorial on how to do that :
    FSTAB - Editing Manually

    After editing /etc/fstab You can test by issuing the following command as root :
    Code:
    mount -a
    If the partition You want to mount on boot will mount after the mount -a command it means your fstab entries are fine and from now on at each boot the partitions will be mounted.

    You can also use YaST > System > Partition manager to get those fiile systems mounted. But TAKE CARE. Do double check that "Do not Format" is checked there, else you will loose your data.

    I guess that the following documentation may be of iinterest to you: SDB:Basics of partitions, filesystems, mount points - openSUSE.

    vike4 just off hand why all the fat partitions (exFAT)
    i have not seen that many since win 98 and have not seen a fat16 since ?? a long time

    You might want to have the MS windows partitions need root access to write to
    It might be possible to install a MS virus through Linux if the NORMAL account has read/write to the NTFS drives
    I do not know of a virus or malware that dose this YET
    But, better safe than sorry .

    read -- everyone
    write -- root only
