fstab file error


I've made and mounted (in a termenal as user root) 6 new partitions on sda. Partitions were created by pmagic5.9.
I've rewritten (edited) the fstab file so that the partitions would be mounted at startup.
Seemed to work find for the first 5 new partitions. When I added the 6th partition, sda10, and rebooted the 6th partition was not mounted.
Where should I look in order to find out what's wrong? Is there any .log file that might help?
BTW, the OS is SuSE11.3
Following is a copy of my changed fstab:
/dev/disk/by-i/ata-Hitachi_HDT721010SLA360_STF604MR275MWP-part2 swap swap defaults 0 0

/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HDT721010SLA360_STF604MR275MWP-part1 / ext3 defaults 1 1

proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0

debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0

usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0

devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0

/dev/sda5 /mnt/lfs ext3 defaults 1 1

/dev/sda6 /mnt/lfs/home ext3 defaults 1 1

/dev/sda7 /mnt/lfs/usr ext3 defaults 1 1

/dev/sda8 /mnt/lfs/tmp ext3 defaults 1 1

/dev/sda9 /mnt/lfs/opt ext3 defaults 1 1

/dev/sda10 /mnt/lfs/source ext3 defaults 1 1

Run mount -a as root and post the error messages.

Code:
fdisk -l
as well would be useful (lowercase L there)
