Are you talking about a line in fstab that you think should auto mount? If so, you probably don't have USB built into your kernel, and therefore it can't be mounted at the time fstab is processed; you may need usb-storage modprobe'd first, or maybe hotplug needs to start first.
PS Maybe you are talking about Gnome detecting it while it's running?
