A mount point is simply a directory that you will use to mount the partition so it would be the same as creating any new directory:

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir /mountpoint

Actually having it mount to that directory is another matter however. You should be able to just click on the Win7 partition listing in Nautilus to have it mount. By default it will mount to /media/label-name.

If you want to mount the partition with a specific set of parameters to a specific mount point let us know.
