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.
$ 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
