Problems with mounting drive at boot


I have problems mounting my second drive at boot automatically.
(sorry i am a noob)

When i use the mount command, it works fine.
mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb2 /mnt/HD/HD_b2
But when i try to add one if the following lines to /etc/fstab
It will not mount the drive at boot or with
mount -a
, also fstab is empty afer reboot (normal??)

/dev/sdb2 /mnt/HD/HD_b2 ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
UUID=553afede-fa45-4cdc-9972-c0a9aa899509 /mnt/HD/HD_b2 ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sdb2 /mnt/HD/HD_b2 ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/sdb2 /mnt/HD/HD_b2 ext3 defaults 0 1
output blkid:

sysfs /mnt/HD/HD_a2/squeeze/sys sysfs rw,relatime 0 0
proc /mnt/HD/HD_a2/squeeze/proc proc rw,relatime 0 0
When mount command is used
mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb2 /mnt/HD/HD_b2
The following line is added to mstab -->
/dev/sdb2 /mnt/HD/HD_b2 ext3 rw 0 0
I diont know what i am doing wrong, mount for HD_a2 works fine (other disk, worked at default), i hav e NAS DNS-325 where i installed Debian on. I used this tutorial to install debian.

The strange thing is, i had to reinstall my NAS, and befor it worked fine after i had installed debian 2 years ago, i just dont remeber how i fixed this.
