/etc/fstab error message so I don't want to turn my computer off


I edited fstab so that I can mount a partition I created for gentoo (so I'm in my Debian partition):
First the error message:
Code:
root@DavidLee1A:/home/david# mount /dev/sda6
[mntent]: line 13 in /etc/fstab is bad
mount: can't find /dev/sda6 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
root@DavidLee1A:/home/david#
The vim /etc/fstab I am working on in sda1:
Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation

~                                                                               
~                                                                               
~                                                                               
~                                                                               
"/etc/fstab" 13L, 735C                                        1,1           All
How do I fix this so that I won't get an error when I try and mount sda6?

I think my problem was the space between nouser, and noauto. I'll marked this solved, sorry.
