Question fstab file probs

I having some problem getting acess to two hard drives that I have added to my system. If I log in as root I can acess them no problem, but not if I log in as a user.
This is my fstab file...
/dev/sda2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hdb1 /windows/D ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=iso8859-1 0 0
/dev/sda1 swap swap pri=42 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/hda1 /home/philg/disk1 reiserfs user,rw,users,gid=users,umask=0000 1 2
/dev/hde1 /home/philg/disk3 reiserfs user,rw,users,gid=users,umask=0000 1 2

hda1 and hde1 are the drives which I cannot get acess too, can someone put me out of my misery?

/dev/hde1 /home/philg/disk3 reiserfs defaults 1 2
The above will set the file systems to mount on boot for all users. You will need to verify file permissions on each file system after it is mounted.
Also, verify hde# is correct. You should only have hda#,hdb#,hdc#,hdd#.
