It's fairly easy.

First manually mount your partitions using 'mount' to insure you have 
the correct options. Then once you have the correction options, add 
them to your /etc/fstab file and when you reboot, the partitions are 
mounted automatically.

Here's an example from my /etc/fstab file. I have a dual boot system and 
mount all my M$ drives when booting linux.

In /etc/fstab

/dev/hda5       /Dr_C        vfat       w 0 0

/dev/hda5 = linux partition for MS logical drive
/Dr_C = linux mount directory (my MS "C" drive)
vfat = MS filesystem type (Partition was formatted as vfat32)
w = writable (read is assumed)
0 = ?  I've forgotten
0 = do not auto fschck on mount

You can also "man fstab" for more info.
