Default How do I activate my sdb5 partition and have it stay active continually.

> Well, sda1 isn't mounted at /media/sda1 but maybe at / or somewhere else.
I just opened Disk&Filesystems again. It said the mount point for sda1
is /media. It sure will be great when I can use the konsole. I am anxious.
The GUI must be lying.

The best for us would be if you could paste the output from this
commands "cat /etc/fstab" and "sudo fdisk -l". Write or copy and paste
them in konsole without the quotes. That way we can see what hard
drives and partitions you got and where they get mounted.

Additionally, I would like to see the output of the mount command both
before and after you mount sda5.

Default How do I activate my sdb5 partition and have it stay active continually.

"cat /etc/fstab" and "sudo fdisk -l"

I just reviewed the results of the two konsole entries. They looked like I
thought they should. I don't understand what is wrong.

I remember that Kubuntu forced the location of installation for the active
primary. As I recall, I wanted it to be located in sda1. I formatted sda1
using ext3 and made it primary in preparation for the other OS installation.
I was not allowed to make the installation and could never figure out why.
Perhaps you can see what is not in the proper order.

Try the command

mount

and you should see if and where your partitions are really mounted.

Am I that dense, Nils, it looks to me like it is on /media.
steven@Studio25:~$ mount
/dev/sdb1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
/sys on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)

What do these entries mean?
(noexec,nosuid,nodev)

I'm a big dummy. In those instructions, replace sda1 with sdb5.
