    What did you do that you might have done wrong? Do you mean you made a change to your /etc/fstab file? What's on line 5 and 6? Probably be a good idea to post the contents of your fstab file.

    fstab

    line 5 and 6 however is said to be bead, however it seems to be working now except only one nfts drives are mountable and my box only will recognize dvd no audio cd's. won't even show up as existing.
