Your post does not have a lot of information, and isn't worded very clearly. I'm not sure what you're asking but regardless, issues with mount, fstab and mtab are common and well documented. Before posting in the forum you should try googling.

Example query to try: ubuntu mount can't find /etc/fstab

Example results:

Please read through these results and try Googling some more. When you finally hit a brick wall and can't find any more results on other forums, then feel free to post follow up questions. Be sure to be specific and include lots of details.
