auto mounting is not working properly


hi friends,

i am using ubuntu 8.04 and i am facing a problem of mounting external pen drive, exernal harddisk or even other /dev/ partitions in my login .. auto mount is not working
so i manually mount the partition by mount command .. but i dont know how i can resolve this problem ...

fdisk -l currently returns as
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160000000000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19452 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xa42d04a3

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 6 48163+ de Dell Utility
/dev/sda2 * 7 964 7695135 7 HPFS/NTFS

/dev/sda6 7044 13122 48829504+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda7 13123 18699 44797221 83 Linux

Partition table entries are not in disk order

Disk /dev/dm-0: 49 MB, 49319424 bytes

This doesn't look like a partition table
