You can use "lazy man's" /etc/rc.local, or write an rc.d style script,
or simply mount it manually when needed.

For example, I have a second disk for "operated backups", with noauto
in /etc/fstab, which I mount manually on the occassions I want to use
it, so it's kept unmounted when not needed (good for security, good
for my mind). :-)
