Any advice how I should do this? The version is Ubuntu 8.10.

Re: regarding using autofs as an alternative

Hello :), In this case, you can also configure autofs for this purpose FYI: http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/Automount.html Regards, Ghulam Yaseen After reading the introduction of autofs on this page, it seems to me that it cannot be used to detect all the partitions itself.

I have two more questions: I have seen that there is a package named autofs listed in the package manager. Can this package be used in my case? Or the script is a better solution? Second question is that if a partition is already listed in /etc/fstab, or the script is run twice, then what will happe...

The font is now ready. We have named it "Urdu Azad Naskh". I am going to upload it somewhere today or tomorrow. Let's see how good the font is.

A friend of mine has merged the fonts for me. The only problem now left is the name to choose for it. I want to choose a name which shows our respect to the authors of both fonts but does not violate any trademark stuff.

Any ideas?
