With Centos 5.5, my external USB drive appears to self mount in 
that the icon appears on the desktop and when I double click on 
it, the files are there.  However, I recall that I need to make 
an entry in the fstab as well as some other changes.

When I do a

# /sbin/fdisk -l

I learn that the device is /dev/sda1 and the system is HPFS/NTFS

I am not sure what to enter into the file system table, fstab and 
if other entries/directories need to be made.
