Now I am trying to add hard drive lines in fstab.
But the changes just won't persist through a reboot.
How do I make them persist.
And will this result in mount points getting created for the hard drives every time I boot.
I don't even know which device corresponds to my hard drive, in the rare event that dsl is detecting it at all. If it is, I am just guessing it to be hda17,18,19,20 since they show some content (17bytes in emelfm) as against most other devices showing 0 bytes.

Please tell me if my struggles are in the right directions.
I really appreciate curaga's suggestion to wait till a more sata-aware dsl comes along, but it's all so uncertain. What if it never happens or my problem persists even after. I can't wait to get fully operational in dsl.
I really like dsl for it's speed and particular style of minimalism. But without all the data on my hard drives my machine makes no sense, and am thus forced to stay with bloatware. Please help.
