partitions not mounted at boot

I made a change in fstab and changed it back (99% sure it's same as before)
and now when I start pc , only / is mounted at boot , so I can't get X running
i have also /usr , /home /MP3 , as seperate partitions.
Usb system also not working anymore.

Here is output of mount: when pc is started

/dev/hda1 on / type reiserfs (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
capifs on /dev/capi type capifs (rw,mode=0666)
automount(pid1698) on /mnt/auto type autofs (rw,fd=5,pgrp=1698,minproto=2,maxproto=4)

and here is content of /etc/fstab :

# /etc/fstab: filesystem table.
# filesystem mountpoint type options dump pass
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /floppy vfat defaults,user,noauto,showexec,umask=022 0 0
/dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/cdburn /cdburn iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hda1 / reiserfs defaults 0 1
/dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hda6 /home xfs auto,users,exec 0 0
/dev/hda7 /MP3 xfs auto,users,exec 0 0
/dev/hda8 /usr xfs auto,users,exec 0 0

/dev/hdd1 /win98 vfat noauto,users,exec,umask=000,uid=jack,gid=jack 0 0

Can anybody tell me why only / get mounted at boot time, or has any suggestions how to fix this?

"Can anybody tell me why only / get mounted at boot time, or has any suggestions how to fix this?"

As a guess I would move the line:
/dev/hda1 / reiserfs defaults 0 1
up to be the first file system mounted. Place it ahead of /proc.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
