    Default How to mount a second HDD as part of the system?

    Hi everyone,

    I had an external HDD but I connected it to the computer via SATA as I want it to work as a "data" partition for two diferent operative systems. I know I have to mount it as "/data" or other non-existent folder in root, but I don't know how to do it, and right know every time the computer starts and i want to access it, it is shown as when I used it through USB and asks my password for permission to use it (which didn't before). I would like to have it mounted but as part of the system, just more memory.
    Could someone help me?

    Thanks in advanced ^^

    You need to mount it in /etc/fstab. There is a thread (http://forums.opensuse.org/showthrea...tition-at-boot) about doing this with a Windows partition which sets out the principles. You will have to discover the name which openSUSE gives to your drive and adapt the information in this thread.

    Note that this thread assumes that the drive will always be attached at bootup; if not, you may want to add the noauto option.
