I mounted an extra partition for a Linux account and found it unmounted after reboot. Why?

I have an extra ext3 primary partition that I wanted to mount for a particular Linux user account. I ran mkdir, mount, chown, and all was good. However, upon reboot I have discovered that the partition is no longer mounted. How can I mount, and keep mounted, an extra partition in Linux? The hard disk is SATA, if that matters. Thanks.

You will need to edit your /etc/fstab file to include a line detailing the filesystem, mount point and options. Here's a good post from the ubuntu forums detailing the fstab file.
