PCLinuxOS 2007 - Can't access Windows Drive at logon

This is my fstab of this drive:
# /dev/sda5, size=81931437, type=11: FAT32 (extended)
/dev/sda5 /mnt/win_d vfat user,exec,rw,noauto,iocharset=utf8,umask=0 0 0

For some reason, I cannot access the files on this drive when my computer boots. I've tried chmoding it with root, but even as the root user, I cannot see them. Anyone has an idea?

Okay, I have to mount it manually using root. How do I set that in my fstab? Thanks!

get rid of the "noauto" option in your fstab
