In order to access files in Ubuntu or another *nix distro that are on another OSes partition you should be able to just open up a file manager (Nautilus, Thunar...). From there you should see a disk, or even a few partitions and they should auto mount when you click on them.

However that's such a bother having to do every time. Open up gnome-terminal and type
sudo blkid
that will display your hard drives and their UUID (Universially Unique Identifier), label (if set), as well as where it's listed at in /dev.

For example:

$ sudo blkid
[sudo] password for gothfvck:
/dev/sda1: UUID="4C06A43806A424C4" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="Ubuntu" UUID="042l6912-050b-4fc0-8e0c-e1ddb9dc3f7b" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sdb3: UUID="653g26fd-2902-4add-b7ae-d11c2643d3b6" TYPE="swap"
/dev/sdb5: LABEL="Home" UUID="46e1b32b-b88f-4d73-b949-f1796fa508c3" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sdc1: LABEL="storage2" UUID="257d18-2b4f-429f-b84e-64043022de6c" TYPE="ext4"

(The NTFS partition was for testing stuff.)
You'll need to copy the UUID's without the quotes if you want to add something to your fstab file and have it automatically mount at boot up.

Open a new tab or window and type
sudo nano /etc/fstab
This makes you the super user, opens a console text editor and then opens whatever file you told it to if provided, in this case it's fstab in the directory /etc/.

Mine looks like:

proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
# / was on /dev/sdb1 during installation
UUID=032f54a4-050b-4fc0-8e0c-e1ddb9dc3f5a / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /home was on /dev/sdb5 during installation
UUID=123cad23b-b88f-4d73-b949-f1796fa508c3 /home ext4 defaults 0 2
# swap was on /dev/sda3 during installation
#UUID=a123cax-871d-4173-8162-9b1fefacc4a2 none swap sw 0 0
# swap was on /dev/sdb3 during installation
UUID=734e15dc-2902-4add-b7ae-d11c2643d3b6 none swap sw 0 0
UUID=257d18-2b4f-429f-b84e-64043022de6c /storage2 ext4 defaults 0 2
UUID=9e9b1181-d1353-4a3f-86f5-a3a528772f74 /storage ext4 defaults 0 2

As you can see from blkid I currently do not have /storage attached because it's an external drive but it's listed because it is almost always connected to this machine.

Just edit this fstab file with the drives you need. Remember "#" lines get skipped over when the computer reads them.

If you want to look at everything in a GUI fashion just to double check I recommend GParted Which can be installed from the repository via apt-get or Synaptic or another software/package manager.

If you're in Windows you'll need to install something like Ext2Fsd: I think the other one: is out of date but will probably still work just fine.

Handy command line tip when using Nautilus without Gnome:
nautilus --no-desktop
The default "run" dialog is usually set to "alt+F2" and if you need to open something with super user privileges first type

Firstly do not try to connect to the Mumble server from the Ventrillo client. It will not work.

Secondly, go to or and download the appropiate version for your OS. Install it.

When you open it, it should automatically open another window to connect to a server. If not then in the main window go to Sever and Connect or hit Ctrl+O and it'll bring up this box. Just click the arrow next to the Public Internet and forget about it if you want. Click "Add New" and start filling out the details.
Label: "Whatever The Frak You Want" It doesn't matter so long as you know what you're getting into when you hit connect.
Port: 012345
Username: Usually your main character's name or a nickname that everyone knows you by or your real name but if you're name is "John Smith" or "Bob Saget" or something really common I strongly suggest not using this because nobody will know who your are plus most of us don't know people by their real names and I'm always a little wary of giving out my IRL name, you should be too.

Hit Okay.
Hit Connect.
Now is when you enter the password and you will only have to do this once.
Next you'll probably want to go to Configure and uncheck Text-To-Speech. However this is great if somebody sends you a written message as it'll read it to you and it'll tell you who enters or leaves the channel but it can be irritating and distracting especially if an actual person is talking.

Now it's time to make sure everything works and do some fine tuning.
Go to Configure again and go through the Audio Wizard and it'll walk you through everything. Play around and adjust things to your liking and make sure everything works. Check your main volume controls and make sure things are turned up and everything's plugged in. I know this sounds stupid to check but it's often the simple things that are the problem and they often get over looked because they so obviously shouldn't be a problem but when trouble shooting always start with the basics and work up.

You're almost done!
I beseech you to to talk to the Certificate Wizard and create a new one and use that certificate every time you sign on if you, for whatever reason, log onto our server from another computer. The Wizard (queue up some Sabbath) will walk you through everything and you should be fine with all the default selections.

Optionally you can set a cool avatar for yourself. Set a comment if you go to AFK or something just so people don't talk to you if you're not there or if you don't wish to be disturbed or maybe if you don't have a mic.
