fedora couldn't realize my c, d drive

hi. i just installed fedora core 1.

everything looks good. except it doesnt mount my c drive and d drive for me.

can anyone help me?
i tryed to edit the etc/f something file with this command:
dev/hda5 mnt/d vfat defaults, noauto, user 0 0

then i go to shell, typed: mount dev/hda5

it just gave me an errror, saying "dev/hda5 mnt/d vfat defaults, noauto, user 0 0 " is a bad line.

can anyone help?

Did you forgotten the / ? Your fstab should look like this:

/dev/hda5 /mnt/d vfat defaults, noauto, user 0 0

Here is a line from my /etc/fstab file:
/dev/sdb5 /mnt/win_c3 vfat umask=0,codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0

you need to preceed the device and mountpoint with /.
