Default Attaching a partition to Umbutu

Trying to get set up for a long stay on Gutsey Ubunto I wanted to
mount the /home/karl directory from my older Fedora 7 system on here. To
do that I made a directory /f7home/ here. I checked and the big Fedora 7
/karl partition is /dev/hda7. So the trick was to mount /dev/hda7 to

I did this in /etc/fstab and it looks like:

karl@karl-desktop:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/hda8
UUID=a9c1cb61-ddfd-44f6-88b0-6dc976daf9ca / ext3
defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /dev/hda1
UUID=7915f630-518c-425b-9fea-0ef07e50d0f9 none swap
sw 0 0
# /dev/sda2
UUID=7d8c37ed-b2ec-4008-a137-f24c6659c5ab none swap
sw 0 0
# /dev/hdb /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0 0
/dev/hda7 /f7home ext3 defaults 1 2

This works just fine and is the last entry in the file.

When I checked my umbuntu karl could not see what was on
/f7home/karl so I used this:

# chown -R karl * from the /f7home/ directory. Now I can read all that
is on that huge hunk of files. I need to rm all rpm and other things not
of interest and that should help. After all this partition is from Fedora 7.
