    We did it!

    I am going blind but this post is from a most beautiful XFCE, & Mozlla 1.7.11. Was looking forward to firefox but this mozilla is pretty sleek and Slackware 10.2 woundup on 160gbs. hdg. Win98
    got demoted to old 10gb hde (no wonder I could not fdisk hda, hdb etc. I have 4ide sockets. I fdisked 4 primary partitions:
    /dev/ hdg1 = / 4gb, /dev/ hdg2 = Swap 1280mb, /dev/hdg3 = /usr 80gb and /dev/hdg4 = /home for the rest of hdd space. Because the are all primary partitions do I hav to mount them everytime I bootup? Still have to config and compile. I am bootingup w/ bare.i bootdisk. haha
    Thankyou all.

    Hi.
    Look in /etc/fstab and add the entries you need. Be sure to include the 'auto' argument for auto-mounting. Documentation is included within /etc/fstab (it's a text file, not an app like I thought)

    Re:What is YUM? Need Help Uninstalling and Installing Browsers

    Finally here is my /etc/fstab : /dev/hdg2 Swap Swap default 0 0
    /dev/hdg1 / ext2 default 1 1
    /dev/hdg3 /usr ext2 default 1 2
    /dev/hdg4 /home ext2 default 1 2

    What do the 0 0, 1 1, 1 2, 1 2, mean? Preparing to compile a kernel for the second time ever. Need to make sure all my partitions are mounted correctly, and correct permissions set for my user profile because it makes sense to compile as usr incase i mess up. Thank you.

    That is the order in which the kernel will assign filesystem checks at bootup.
