fstab problem: mount: can't find dvd in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
 
Well as the subject says I adjusted my fstab so I could mount my cdrw as well as my dvd drive. It looked alright to me but when i try to mount the dvd or cdrw it doesn't work and the folders didn't create themselves in the /mnt directory. Maybe I have to create them? Anyways heres what my fstab looks like:

/dev/hda1 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb vfat noauto,rw,umask=000 1 0
/dev/hdc /mnt/dvd iso9660 noauto,user,ro,unhide 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrw iso9660 noauto,user,ro,unhide 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,user 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0


Is there anything wrong here? Also the error mount: can't find dvd in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab appears when I attempt to mount either just as the subject suggests. I'm running Here's my specs just in-case it would help:

Proc: P4 1.5
mem: 256mb of SD
hda: Western Digital 120GB
hdc: BenQ DVD-ROM drive
hdd: basic CD-RW
fd0: random old floppy drive w/o a faceplate ;)
Motherboard: Some crappy one off an eMachines box (the only stuff left from my emachines pc)
sda: iomega 80gb Portable USB hard drive

All help is greatly appreciated

You have to create the folders, also you have to call mount by typing: mount /mnt/dvd not mount dvd

Yeah, you were in the /mnt directory but that doesn't matter to the 'mount' command. It looks in /etc/fstab and matches your arguments, in your case, just 'dvd'. That doesn't match...but /mnt/dvd does. Does that make sense? You can mount anything anywhere but it needs to match fstab's information unless you went the other way with it: mount /dev/hdb2 or something like that, ya know?
