adjust the following to your needs

  /dev/sdd1 /mnt/usb ext3 dev,auto,nouser,rw,sync   0 0

Just be careful on boot up, I had trouble on boot when the drive 
was already connected ... it wasnt recognized. I had to put up a boot
delay onto the kernel command line to make sure the drivers
where all awake when the mounts occur.
