I hope this is the right place to post this. I was wondering if the new mint can easily automount an extra hard drive?

Depends on what you mean. Just click the disk and it's mounted, but if you want it to be mounted at boot you have to edit fstab. It's pretty simple once you've done it
(Copy the line in /etc/mtab for the disk while it's mounted into /etc/fstab - that's it)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
