    Do you have the drive in /etc/fstab? Else read the manpages for fstab
    and mount.
    I guess the line in fstab would be something like:

    /dev/pd0 /mnt/avatar ext2 noauto,user 0 0

    replace ext2 with vfat if it is a windows disk.

    I am not sure about the permissions line, but I think it is right if you
    want users to be able to mount it, and don't want it to be automatically
    mounted at startup.
