Did you configure mount points for them during install, or are they 
being mounted automatically on mount points in /media? If you did 
not set up mount points for them during install, and did not add 
them later, then they will not show up in /etc/fstab. You may want 
to create entries and mount points for the internal drives if they 
are not removable. For removable drives, you will probably not want 
to create fstab entries for them - it can cause problems when 
booting with the drives disconnected.


   Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
