With the proper line in fstab, this should be possible. I know it works
Show us your fstab.
And, please, no attitude, we don't ask the questions to diss you, we just
need to figure out what you are asking. Andrei is a long-time, helpful
poster here and was trying to help you, you appear to be new to Debian and
may not have yet learned about any differences between it and the distro
which is most familiar to you. I agree with him, it's not clear to me
