    nothing stops mr laxmi,
    one thing i want to get clear that, do u understand my requirement

    su -c /sbin/fdisk -l: it is for checking the partitions.....
    df -h : to view the space of partio\tions in human readable format
    cat /etc/fstab : to view the content in fstab.

    i am telling that i have already entered the mounting partition and mount point into fstab.
    after saving that fstab,
    i can see the mounted partition on /misc.
    after that if u restart ur system, u cant see any files or folders in /misc

    did u got my query

    ok, i am posting my requirement in detail,

    i am having 5 linux partitions (ext3),
    /dev/sda1 => /boot
    /dev/sda2 => /
    /dev/sda3 => swap
    /dev/sda4 => fat32
    /dev/sda5 => ext3

    i am trying to mount the /dev/sda5 partition into /misc in /etc.fstab as,


    /dev/sda5 /misc ext3 defaults 0 0


    and
    /dev/sda5 has a total of 15 files and folders

    after saving the entries in fstab as above,
    i can see those 15 files in /misc,

    as the entries in fstab is used for permanent mounting, if i restart the system, the files in /misc is not present, means the data in the partition of /dev/sda5 is not mounting into /misc even though the entry is present in fstab,


    i want to get rid of the above problem which i am facing,

    even i restart my system, i should be able to see the content (15 file s and folders) of /dev/sda5 into /misc

    not only /dev/sda5, even any partition is not mounting permanently to /misc folder,
    so please let me know if u know how to perform mounting permanently into /misc

    Are there any duplicate entries in /etc/fstab file?

    As mentioned by other members several times, post complete contents of /etc/fstab file and output of fdisk -l and df -h command here. We can't help you unless you provide us that info.

    How much time doesn't take to just execute those commands and copy/paste output?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
