Installing a new Hard Drive with my PogoPlug

I got a new 1TB hard drive and plugged it into my pogo plug.  Here's what I had to do to get it to work the way I like it:

Repartition the drive to get rid of the factory partition and replace it with EXT3.
  • run cfdisk
  • delete current partition
  • partition type = 83
  • make it bootable for the heck of it.
  • Write the table.
Reformat The Drive:
$ sudo mke2fs -j /dev/sda1
$ sudo mkdir /mnt/sda1

Add the drive to FSTAB
/dev/sda1   /mnt/sda1       auto    auto,rw  0       0

Set drive to automatically boot (USB isn't active when drives are mounted at first):
$ sudo /etc/init.d/rc.local
Add to the bottom:  mount -a

Make a folder and link it to my home folder:
$ mkdir /mnt/sda1/david/
$ ln -s /mnt/sda1/david/      /home/david/bigDrive
