I installed a new hard drive that will be used for additional storage only. I have followed these instructions on Ubuntu pages to partition it, but when I follow the instructions to automatically mount it, I get lost. It tells me to enter a new line in fstab but when I enter the line, there is no way to press enter and confirm. I also see it says something about using uuid but that link is no help either.
The output of
sudo fdisk -l:
