Default How Do I Set Up A USB Drive for Backups?

Hello,

I finally got everything working correct on my server, so now I would like to begin performing backups regularly. I purchased a 160GB USB HDD for this purpose, but I'm having troubles getting it configured properly. There are a lot of great tips here for actually doing the backups, but I can't seem to find anything to help me get the hardware set up!

I would prefer to just leave the drive powered on all of the time so that it mounts on boot-up, but I'm having a few problems making this work. Can anyone assist?

Also, my system is able to see the drive if I power it up after I boot....but only after I receive a pop-up message asking if I want to mount the USB drive. I would prefer that it mount automatically when I power it up, and then have an icon appear on my desktop to let me know that it is available. How can I do this?

Note: I am using SUSE 9.3

Thanks in advance!

JustJim
