Yes it is!

get rid of those two lines with ntfs-3g , and replace them with:
(Do not uninstall ntfs-3g though)

/dev/sda1 /media/c_drive ntfs rw,users,umask=022 0 0
/dev/sda5 /media/d_drive ntfs rw,users,umask=022 0 0

That should mound ntfs volumes ... (not sure if you could write on them, but you should be able to read from them)

I run out of ideas ...

One thing you can try is to open another terminal and enter "sudo tail -f /var/log/messages".

Then in the first terminal, enter "sudo mount /media/c_drive". Monitor any message printed in /var/log/messages. It may pinpoint the exact problem.

One other thing. Don't use /media for fixed drives. Create mount points under /mnt. /media is for removable drives mounted automatically by HAL.

I think you should disregard the post about using "ntfs" instead of "ntfs-3g". Fedora 10 doesn't have the ntfs kernel module enabled.
Code:
grep NTFS /boot/config-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64
# CONFIG_NTFS_FS is not set

Not using /media as a mount point is just a guideline. I Have been using it for some stuff since at least FC6 without any issue.

It did not give any messages in the "sudo mount /media/c_drive" terminal, however in the "sudo mount /media/c_drive" terminal it gives me the following: ntfs-3g-mount: mount failed: Device or resource busy.

on more thing, now it gives me the following warning/error at the terminal when openning fstab.

Code:
GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information. (Details -  1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)
This is repeated in the terminal many times.

On my system, HAL won't try to mount a filesystem that is listed in /etc/fstab. ( I use SuSE ) On others it will. Ubuntu (maybe others as well) changes /etc/fstab on the fly to reflect changes, which I really think stinks because /etc/fstab is supposed to be a static file. I think you may be having two problems. A) You have HAL trying to automatically the filesystem under /media, and your mount point in /etc/fstab is trying to mount it under /media as well. Maybe a dueling mounting situation. Please change the mount point in /etc/fstab outside of /media. That isn't what /media is for, and it will eliminate one possibility.

B) The system is (inanely) trying to update /etc/fstab so you can't open it to edit. You may need to reboot or edit it off line. Are you trying to edit /etc/fstab locally from the terminal, or remotely, or from the gui? First try a reboot and see if you can then edit /etc/fstab.

With c_drive & d_drive in /etc/fstab it should (if you don't use the noauto option) mount them when you boot. Run "dmesg | less" and see what happens when you boot. Run "mount" by itself to see if they are mounted already. Also consider including "ntfs-3g" in initrd and rerunming "mkinitrd". That way you should be able to mount them immediately when you boot up. Vinnywrite's idea about checking the filesystems is a good one.


Sorry I thought that you used Fedora 10. I thought I remembered your original post mention Fedora 10.

I reinstalled fedora 10 to overcome this problem and everything is working fine now. Both my 2 NTFS partitions as well as my ext3 partition are mounted; however, none is appearing in the PLACES menu!

Any hints to let them appear their so that I can easily access them?

Thanks.

Assuming Gnome; just open any directory, you will see the "places" header on the top border, under it there is +bookmark.

Thanks. However, I meant the PLACES menu (in the launcher panel) that lies between APPLICATIONS and SYSTEM menus. Anyway, it is okay now and I can access them easily.

Yes, this is one way you can add stuff to the PLACES menu on the launcher panel.
