F7 failed to mount local filesystems at boot


I have two SATA drives with five Linux partitions and I want F7 to auto-mount them at boot. One drive has four partitions while the other has only one:

Code:
[basel@localhost ~]$ ls -l /dev/sda
sda   sda1  sda2  sda3  sda4
[basel@localhost ~]$ ls -l /dev/sdb
sdb   sdb1
Here is fstab and blkid.tab
Code:
[basel@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/fstab
LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/media/linux      /media/linux            reiserfs defaults        1 2
LABEL=/mnt/data         /media/data             reiserfs defaults        1 2
LABEL=/media/backup     /media/backup           reiserfs defaults        1 2
tmpfs                   /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
sysfs                   /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
proc                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
LABEL=SWAP-sda4         swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

basel@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/blkid/blkid.tab
<device DEVNO="0x0811" TIME="1180793996" UUID="" LABEL="/media/backup" TYPE="reiserfs">/dev/sdb1</device>
<device DEVNO="0x0804" TIME="1180793982" TYPE="swap" LABEL="SWAP-sda4">/dev/sda4</device>
<device DEVNO="0x0803" TIME="1180793996" UUID="" LABEL="/media/linux" TYPE="reiserfs">/dev/sda3</device>
<device DEVNO="0x0802" TIME="1180793981" LABEL="/" UUID="" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3">/dev/sda2</device>
<device DEVNO="0x0801" TIME="1180794786" UUID="" LABEL="/mnt/data" TYPE="reiserfs">/dev/sda1</device>
as of now I have to run 'mount -a' as root each time I reboot F7.

I've a similar problem.
My USB pend drive doesn't want to be auto mounted.
If I remove the drive and put back, then I am able to mount it.
What could be the problem?

Do you get an icon on the desktop when you connect your USB drive? What is the output of 'dmesg | tail' in each case?

In my case, when I reboot the computer the dmesg doesn't show any info about the USB drive. Even the led of the drive doesn't light! If I put off and plug back the led is light and after a few second the icon appear in the desktop.
I'd a similar problem with an older FC6 kernel. It seems the issue exists in the current kernel. Maybe I need to insert any USB module with modprobe to solve this problem?

Thanks.

Thanks.
Solved the problem, but it seems it's a kernel issue. The solution is:
#insmod /path_to_module/usb-storage.ko
