Smile fstab

I am using both Slackware and XP. While installing Slackware, it detected that there were four other partions of NTFS format. I was asked to name them. But I accidentally gave the name /ntfs-d for the partitions D: and E: The name are like this:

For C: I gave /ntfs-c
For D: I gave /ntfs-d
For E: I gave /ntfs-d
For F: I gave /ntfs-f

The result is that, I can access only three partiotions through Slackware.
Then I edited the fstab file under /etc. And the file is now like this:

For C: /ntfs-c
For D: /ntfs-d
For E: /ntfs-e
For F: /ntfs-f

But again there are only three partions. One partition is still missing.
Now I am trying to make all the four NTFS partitions accessible through Slackware.

Well did you create the /ntfs-e directory?

As root:

mkdir /ntfs-e && mount -a
