Automatic Unmount Windows drive problem

Every time I have to shutdown first I have to unmount windows and then shutdown my Fedora 6 else there will be error messages showing while the system is shutting down. I have this line in my fstab :

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g dmask=022,fmask=133,locale=hu_HU.UTF-8,user 0 0

I have updated ntfs-3g also and selinux policy also.

Please help.

No, adding auto after user is also not working. While shutting down there are same error message coming. As it is shutting down I cannot copy the exact error message, but it has some relation to read/write support of ntfs-3g.
