Bug Description

There should be a GUI for editing fstab (...other than a text editor). Mainly, what i want to do it be able to make a drive mount automatically (missed my opportunity to set that upon installation). If i mount it and right click to access properties, i can view the "Volume" tab where i can set the mount point, so this would be a nice place to have a checkmark for "Mount automatically" or something.
