fstab can't find a file system fdisk can


I've set up an 80G IDE drive as described by fdisk:

The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 9729.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
(e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

Command (m for help): p

Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 1147 9213246 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2 1148 1160 104422+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 1161 3710 20482875 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 3711 9729 48347617+ 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 3711 3833 987966 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda6 3834 9729 47359588+ 83 Linux

my fstab looks like this:

/dev/hda2 /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 2
/dev/hda3 / ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hda6 /Data ext2 noatime 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,owner,exec 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,user 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0

messages on booting up tell me that /Data cannot be mounted.

Webmin sees this:
Disk Partitions
Location IDE device A
Cylinders 9729
Model ST380021A
Edit IDE parameters

No. Type Extent Start End Use Free
1 HPFS/NTFS 1 1147
2 Linux 1148 1160 /boot
3 Linux 1161 3710 / 61 %
4 Extended 3711 9729
5 Linux swap 3711 3833 swap
6 Linux 3834 9729 /Data


It appears that /dev/hda6 can be seen by several tools, but I can't mount it. What's wrong here?

Thanks.

Stupid me. I didn't make a mount point off /. All is well. Sorry for blowing my top.
