I recently purchased a Seagate Expansion external drive, 1.5 TB. I wish to use it on a Debian system so I have reformatted the disk to ext3 rather than the ntfs that it came with. I can manually mount it and it works just fine. My question is how or what do I configure in order for it to mount itself auto magically when it is plugged in. I generally don't mess around with hardware much.
