Fstab resets itself after two boots


I have two hardrives, one ext3 adn one fat32. (the linux drive always mounts fine)
I can set my fstab to mount the fat32 drive, and then reset the computer and it will be mounted, but if I rest again the fstab file is changed and it no longer mounts. I had this working correctly on a previos linux install, but I don't know what I did.

Does the fstab entry for the drives have kudzu as an option? If so then remove the option.

I got it working (at least it has worked for the last four boots)
I put
/dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2 vfat rw,user,exec,umask=0 1 1
into the fstab
