problems automounting mandrake partition in RH 7.2

here is my fstab:

[Randy@localhost Randy]$ cat /etc/fstab
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sda4 /mnt/zip100.0 auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/wind vfat user,defaults,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdb5 /mnt/mandy ext3 user,defaults,umask=000 0 0

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

/dev/hdb5 is my mandrake partition

I can mount it with

mount /dev/hdb5 /mnt/mandy

but when the comp boots i get an error message that says something about
"can't mount filesystem wrong type ... or superblock..., or too many mounted filesystems..."

but I can still come in and manually mount it

My /mnt/wind autopartition works fine.

Thanks in advance.

Try making your fstab line look like this:

/dev/hdb5 /mnt/mandy ext3 user,defaults 1 2
