How to Mount a 2nd Hard drive automatically

Ihave loked through this site but cannot find the answer I need..SO - In my PC, I boot Fedora 21 off a Scsi drive but I hold all the data on a 2nd drive. Once I have logged in and want to access this data I have to enter the root Password to gain access to the disk.

How can I mount this drive automatically and have it NOT ask for the password. I assume I need to edit the fstab file.the drive is listed as sda witht e partition using sda1.or do I use the Label ?

Suimply put I do not want to give out my Root password just so other members of the house can access their own data LOL..Its been a nightmare so far.. HELP
