just manually add the approporate line to /etc/fstab. Man fstab will
give some background. see also  the manpage for fstab-sync:

  This  program serves one major purpose: Update the file systems table
file /etc/fstab and create/remove mount points in
       /media in response to HAL events. This program is usually never
run directly from a shell; instead it is invoked  as  a
       callout by the HAL daemon.

kind regards,
