I've successfully managed to partition and format my external drive as ext3, and managed to mount it (as the whitelight doesn't automatically mount it).
I did a reboot and it changed the drive from sdb to sdc, not a major drama.
How do I make the ext3 drive mount automatically, and be shared. Mounting to /shares/Backup does not do the job.
What I am trying to do is to have a 1TB ext3 partition mount automatically, and be accessible via sftp and samba. This will be my backup partition that I want to rsync the main volume to, to maintain an automatic backup of the drive.
I'm still pretty new to linux, so any help, or links would be greatly appreciated.
