none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0

/dev/hda1 /mnt/Windows98 auto defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 /mnt/WindowsXP auto defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/WindowsME auto defaults 0 0

I can read /write to the windows drives they are all fat32 .
my problem is(not a big problem) on bootup i get a message that line 11 is a bad format
How do i end line 11.
it does not cause any problems ,What did I do wrong to get bad format message.
if I take line 11 out i get the same message about line 10.

any suggestions?

Isn't it just a missing new line character?
Try to open fstab in an editor, position the cursor in the end of the last line and hit ENTER.

mounting windows partitions in redhat 9

well I tried your suggestion.then I got two messages.
bad format on line 11 /ect/fstab, bad format on line 12 /ect/fstab, Wierd hugh.
so I tried 3 different write programs,still the same thing.
So i tried stopping at the end of line 10 and used the right arrow (one time)which brought me to the next
line and saved it there.
Now its Fine. No error messages.

Thank You for the tip and sending me in the right direction.

Well, not the way I thought, but it worked. I'm glad.
I guess the interpreter needs a new line or something.
