I run Ubuntu 10.10 AMD64 and want to ask for suggestion how to make fat32 partition mounted on startup or at login.

I usually have to open nautilus and click on the partition to get it mounted.

You'll want to add it to your /etc/fstab file:

/dev/sdz9 /mount_point vfat rw,noatime,user 0 0

Just place your partition and mount point info in there. That should get you going.
