Auto mounting hda1 in FDC#


In FDC1, Mandrake and Mepis I have the following line in fstab

dev/hda1 /windows vfat auto,uft8,umask=0 0 0

Hda1 is mounted when linux starts.

In FDC3 I have the same line and the drive fails to mount on boot.

I can mount it after boot by entering $mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /windows

I know it is a minor annoyance, but I would like to have my windows drive there when I want to access it, without mounting it manually.

Can anybody help?

What is the uft8 bit about? Maybe FC doesn't know what it means

And should there be spaces in your umask bit? 000

there should also be a slash before dev/hda1 ---? /dev/hda1

what is the output of mount -a rather than mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /windows

as this will tell you if there is an error in your /etc/fstab
