Thanks for your reply. i think that we are on the same page, now.

I would ask your indulgence for one more request.

Here is my durectiry stucture:

NAME   MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda      8:0    0 465.8G  0 disk
├─sda1   8:1    0 457.9G  0 part /

sr0     11:0    1  1024M  0 rom

Here is what I have asteh installed fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type> <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=4dc278b7-1792-4e89-b67e-a517fce97d19 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=acfb9d26-69c6-4489-88fc-12f5c50bda97 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/sr0        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0 0

Here is wwhat I'm proposing:

/dev/hda1 / ext4 defaults 0 1
/dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /hdb1 ext4 defaults 0 0
/dev/hdc1 /hdc1 ext4 defaults 0 0

There are two key questions:

    1.  Will the boot proceed to completion?
    2.  Will users have read/write permission?

Finally, if the answer(s), to either or both, is/are 'no' - what should the fstab entries be in order to allow users to Read/Write?

This is rather critical for my continuing good health. If I crash the system and have to reinstall the OS my wife is going to be greatly displeased. I would like to avoid this fate.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

        Steve
