I'm brand new to Fedora / Linux and I have a question about automounting NTFS formatted drives and partitions. I have found several posts that detail how to add commands to /fstab to automount ntfs drives in Fedora.
My situation is that I'm booting Fedora 10 x86_64 from a USB flash drive to use as a "rescue console" for drives formatted in NTFS with corrupt / non-recoverable Windows installations. My idea is booting into Fedora 10 from the flash drive, using Fedora to sort through the files on the NTFS volume and move pictures, music, etc. from the drive before it's formatted and prepared for a fresh Windows install.
My question is: Will adding the commands to /fstab autodetect and automount any NTFS volumes present when Fedora boots (the existing hard drive with the corrupt OS) as well as any external USB devices (an external hard drive formatted in NTFS) attached while Fedora is running? If not, is there a way to get Fedora 10 to autodetect and automount any existing or external NTFS volumes?
