help mounting an external firewire drive


I've got an external firewire drive that I want to have automatically mounted on boot. There are 3 partitions on it 2 ntfs & one of them is a FAT32 partition which I want mounted r+w so I can share it with windows.

All this is normally default when I install Mandriva but I've just installed SuSE 10 (which bar this problem is great!) and I just can't mount the thing. Even the KDE GUI tools for mounting won't work. The only way I can mount it is by leaving it unplugged, and then connecting it when the system is fully booted. It recognizes it fine then.

Here's a copy of my fstab. Can anyone make the necessary changes so I can paste it in, also tell me what you've done so I know next time.

Thanks in advance

Steve
