Mount points are gone after reboot

I'm running into a problem trying to mount an external hard drive after I reboot my redhat 9 system. I can create the mount point as root then mount the external hdd using the fstab line:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/storix vfat user,rw,kudzu 0 0

I can also be a regular user and mount the external drive. All is well
until I reboot and have do everything over again because the changes to fstab are gone and the mount point is missing. Why do they just dissappear?

Thanks for any help.

Try disabling kudzu and removing it from /etc/fstab.

That is a hardware probe and configuring tool that will undo lots of stuff for you.

If you add new hardware, you can run it manually by commanding as root
