Question usb key with RH 7.3 - system freeses

When I plug my usb key in, then everything freezes and all I can do is just turn of the computer the hard way.

I have tried putting this line in fstab (like I did on my RH 7.2 computer and everythings works fine there)
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbkey vfat rw,owner,noauto,umask=000 0 0

and I have tried to put this line in auto.misc
usb -fstype=vfat,user,exec,nodev,umask=000 :/dev/sda1

but it is allways the same story, just when I plug in my usb key, the computer freezes.

This is not a problem in my RH 7.2 computer, so if anybody knows anything about this strange problem then I would be very very glad.
