I do not know what type fuseblk is, so I need to know if it is

Do this on konsole - probably you need to be root:

su - <== it will ask for your root password
file -s /dev/sda2 <== this will tell me what type that
partition really is. I expect vfat or ntfs.

Ok, here is copied from my terminal window:

linux-8rby:~ # file -s /dev/sda2
/dev/sda2: x86 boot sector

I am pretty sure the D drive is NTFS, because I formatted it as that in
windows. But the response to the command was x86 boot sector, and I am
not quite sure what that means.

After that, the procedure is to create an entry in /etc/fstab to mount
it either manually or automatically, with write permissions, and not
via Dolphin, so that any program can access it.

Um, can you tell me kind of how to do that? Here are the contents of my
/etc/fstab file, copied from Kwrite:
