No, I don't think you can just do it like that. Take a look at the Automount mini-Howto: http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/mini/Automount.html.

Hope this helps :-)

I think you can do this with supermount. You will need to compile it either into your kernel or as a module. Then I believe you simply add supermount to your fstab like so:

Code:
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0         /mnt/dvdrom      iso9660      noauto,ro,supermount         0 0

this will mount windows 98 automatically, just make sure you have vfat support either build in or as a module and if it is a module add vfat to /etc/modules.autoload

/dev/hda1 /mnt/Win98 vfat user,auto 0 0

This might also be worth to take a shot at:

http://supermount-ng.sourceforge.net/

It's a kernel patch... It's a reimplementation of the Mandrake supermount thingy!

Yes. You don't need automount or supermount for this, but a kernel compiled with SMB support. Edit this line and put it in your fstab:
Code:

//host/sharename /mount_path   smbfs   username=somename,password=somepassword,dmask=777,fmask=777 0 0

How do you turn off automount on the CD? It seems to be causing some problems with bootstrap...

Mmm.. No response from here and no response from the devs... I know this is an old thread, but if any of you guys know how to turn automount off on the live CD, please let me know.

Kind regards,

If you're running at 2.6 kernel then it's under Device Drivers -> Kernel Automounter Support.

HTH,
Andrew

p.s. I'm not sure if these forums have a policy on necroing dead threads, but you'd probably get a better reponse by starting a new thread rather than resurrecting a dead one, IMHO.

submount is better than supermount. emerge submount to build the subfs module.
