Mount with fstab and UUID

Check UUID:

$ blkid
/dev/loop0: TYPE="squashfs"
/dev/sda1: UUID="46E439E9E439DBBD" LABEL="SYSTEM" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sda5: LABEL="DATA" UUID="0686-FAFA" TYPE="vfat"
/dev/sda6: UUID="4ddd1e8c-e2e2-4397-838b-ea953e0a7795" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3"
/dev/sda7: TYPE="swap" UUID="9be4f92e-4f22-41f4-9aee-1c93f9cdf6ac"
/dev/sda8: UUID="6a969f33-240b-440c-9a43-e68f8b28fd19" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3"
/dev/sda9: UUID="d7aac664-c177-46aa-be67-40aad4d3f129" TYPE="ext3" SEC_TYPE="ext2"
/dev/sda10: UUID="36cdb4cb-351b-4f47-9c24-64a9e80c826b" TYPE="ext4"


$ sudo vol_id -u /dev/sda7

Put it in /etc/fstab to mount the device at boot.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>

The sixth field <pass>, is used by the fsck program to determine the order in which filesystem checks are done at reboot time. The root filesystem should be specified with a <pass> of 1, and other filesystems should have a <pass> of 2.
