I have downloaded and instealled fedora 17 gnome, and I love it! I have been messing around with linux on and off for a couple of years, I am slightly beyond newbee status..lol. I am trying to completely break my windows habit! I have linux installed on a SSD, but my pictures, music, and videos are on different drives, each in its own partition (which is how I had it set up from windows). Could someone please teach me the way to set up where my music folder/drive automatically is mounted, and change it so the fedora sees this music folder as the default music folder. Does that make sense? I don't necessarily want to change where my default home folder is, because I have my music, videos, and pictures each on its own partition. Any help would greatly be appreciated!

I just mount the shared partition(s) using fstab, and removed the default dirs on the home folder and replace them with symlinks
