Mounting Drives in Linux or Couldn’t this be a bit easier

I know i’m not the only person who finds the whole mounting a drive in Linux thingy a bit messy. There is certainly a lot of help and support for editing Fstab but what I really wanted was a foolproof GUI version. A quick look at the Linux Mint website suggested Disk-Manager.

Disk-Manager is just what I wanted, I opened the program and was informed 1 drive was waiting to be configured, and sure enough it was the NTFS drive I wanted to use. I clicked configure then O.K and finaly saved on exit, that was it, job done. I rebooted the PC just to check and yes the new drive was auto mounted for all users and was using the read/write NTFS driver – 3g for read/write support on NTFS volumes.


PC companies that aren’t so Specialist

So have you ever been treated bad by a PC company ? had to work in dangerous conditions ? did they claim to be Specialist‘s when they were obviously not ? perhaps you bought from them and they took your money then ignored you ? i’d like to hear your Horror Stories , whether as an employee or a customer. Post them now and we’ll make the world a safer place…. what happens when you ignore Health & Safety Regs.

Picture of boxes collapsing on to a forklift truck driver. If proper safety procedures had been in place this could have been avoided.
