Question using dmesg to find error in booting

I have the this error when booting:
'Aborting: Please provide new pathname for what used to be /dev/hdd4'
/dev/hdd4 mounts as an Omega zipdrive and works fine. How could I fix this error message during boot? Here is my dmesg log.
Thanks for your help. I had to delete any references to an URL in order to post.

Sounds like the contents of /etc/fstab might be messed up.

Please post the contents

Here is my fstab. I had trouble getting my zip drive to mount at first but now mounts fine with this. Thanks for your help.
