Use /etc/fstab

you should use the partition's UUID instead of it's device description to make things less risky as the description can vary
UUID=4236231D-1117-333F-8899-3235F9B8000 /Volumes/NAME_OF_PARTITION hfs noauto,rw 1 2
instead of
/dev/disk0s5 /Volumes/NAME_OF_PARTITION hfs noauto,rw 1 2
to get the UUID do:
diskutil info /dev/disk0s5
