Mounting 2 NTFS drives

Hey all!

I am pretty new on Linux, and I installed Fedora Core 7 two days ago.
Before I started with Linux, I worked on Windows XP, where I made the 2 NTFS partitions at.

After installing Fedora, I noticed that two drives where "gone"(With gone I mean, nowhere to find, except in Fdisk, I can see them there).
So I tried to edit my /etc/fstab, and added:
/dev/sda2 /media/windows ntfs defaults 0 1
/dev/sdb1 /media/windows ntfs defaults 0 1
to it. After rebooting my computer, I still couldnt see these 2 drives.

The problem is, I really need them. All my schoolwork, holidaypictures, music and stuff like that is on that 2 drives.

Anyone here who got an idea how I can make that 2 drives visible, and accessable?

Many thanks in advance, Levitas
