But of course! You need to add an entry into /etc/fstab. The problem
comes in that if you attach multiple USB mass storage devices, they get
assigned different scsi device numbers depending on what order they're
plugged in :-(
I use an app called USB Storage (usb-storage_2.0-1_i386.deb) from
http://s1x.homelinux.net/usb-storage.php (tip include your URL in the
README etc so people don't have to search onm your name in Google!)
There is a newer version but it didn't work for me.
This little perl script works a treat handling plugging and
automatically adding entries into the Nautilus context menu.
There's a RedHat project using D-Bus that should sort all his out in the
Let me know if you need any more help.
