Having the mount option defaults should be enough to have the partition auto mount at boot, but if, for some reason. it does not, rw,auto,exec should work. The noatime is optional.
Here's my new fstab entry:
UUID=83483438-5135-4724-9d1c-6c6811043506 /usbdrv ext3 rw,user,auto,exec,noatime 0 0
It still didn't mount at boot.
I'm beginning to wonder if there's something wrong with startup stuff in general. I set up update-notifier to autostart when kde comes up, but it fails too. It gives me the message that my network connection is up, but it couldn't contact the repository. It then asks me if I want to configure a new repository. If I say "no" and start it from the menu, it starts up fine.
