How do I cause sda9 to be mounted automatically at boot?

Frugal, Puppy is on sda5 as is pup_save.2fs.

See http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=40895
Replace hda1 with sda9, and vfat with whatever type of filesystem you have.

That Worked. Thanks.

Here is a summary of what I did.

Sda8 is used in this example. Do the following to mount it at boot:
Code:
Unmount sda8

In terminal enter:
Code:
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda8 /mnt/sda8

This will mount sda8

Go to /root/Startup and create a file by right clicking on an open space in rox-->New-->Blank File. Name it so it is identifiable.
Open the file with a simple editor and in this order put this into the file:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda8 /mnt/sda8


Right click on the file and select permissions and press OK to make it executable.

This might help others . . . .

Evolution of a Puppy

Partition and formatting tools

There was a time before Puppy even imagined Gnome
Partition Editor.

Suffice it to say we got along just fine. Now there is in
many people's minds only GParted.

As far as I'm concerned with this limited thinking one
will either solve their problems with GParted or
GParted or not solve them at all.

Frankly, I can solve many problems faster and easier
without GParted. Moreover, there are problems
GParted is not GUI'ed to deal with. Does it matter?

NTFS read and write

What did we do before the NTFS write? Tell the truth
and they'd think me nuts.

Running user startup commands - a Puppy chronology
    1st was) /etc/rc.d/rc.local
    2nd came) /etc/profile.local
    3rd came ) /root/Startup
They all exist as potential points to run user
defined startup commands. Is this redundancy?

It is actually not redundancy at all. If I thought it
were, I'd mention it to the developers.

My guess is /root/Startup has gone the way of
GParted. Either use /root/Startup or use /root/Startup
