Apart from /, /home and swap partitions, I've created one more partition, just for storage. How can I make that partition auto mount somewhere?

Use PySDM to configure what partitions need to be mounted. PySDM is a Py-GTK front end of sorts to /etc/fstab

To install it in Ubuntu, type apt-get install pysdm at the terminal or just search for PySDM in the software centre.

If you want to automatically add a partition at boot, you need to add its data to /etc/fstab. See man fstab for more info, or ask here if you need more help.
