Angry Fstab entries vanish after reboot


I have just complete a fresh install of Fedora Core 1.

I have a number of HD for which I normally set up links on the desktop so they are only mounted on request. For example in the fstab, I will add a line as:

/dev/hdba1 /mnt/w2k vfat noauto,user,kudzu,rw, 0 0

and in the mnt dir i would create a new dir called w2k.

then on the desktop create a new HD icon, pointed tp the correct location, and bob is your uncle. Everything works just fine, next reboot, the entry in the fstab is gone, an so is the dir in the mnt dir.

what is going on? am I loosing the plot here?

I suspect kudzu is removing the entry. Add the entry back in the /etc/fstab file but do not add kudzu option.
