How do I get the "GoFlex Home" network drive to mount in ubuntu 10.4?

On my 11.10 install, the nautilus file browser is able to find it automatically, and calls it an "AFP volume". See Fstab for GoFlex Home 2tb NAS

I think it is possible to add AFP functionality to Ubuntu since 9.04, according to http://missingreadme.wordpress.com/2010/05/08/how-to-set-up-afp-filesharing-on-ubuntu/ ... Hope that helps

PS I should add: you can access the GoFlex configuration page using a web browser, by typing in the ip address for the drive as your web location. This information might be under "attached devices" in your router page, which often times is a very similar process. For example: If you see 192.168.0.4 as your Ubuntu machine's IP address (type 'ifconfig' in the terminal), then your router is probably 192.168.0.1, and your GoFlex is probably 192.168.0.5 or something.

Run fsck <drive name> to see whether or not the filesystem is in good shape (no errors, bad sectors, etc.). Then try again.
