    unable to mount fat32 partitions on fc3


    i have to mount the windows partions everytime i log in fc3 by
    #mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c
    and so on for other partitions.
    .I edited fstab so that they are mounted permanently but whenever i logout or reboot they are unmounte and on login i have to go thru the whole procedure of mounting them manually again.
    my fstab looks like:

    # This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
    LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
    none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    LABEL=/home1 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
    LABEL=SWAP-hda11 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c vfat users,rw,owner,unmask=000 0 0
    /dev/hda2 /mnt/win_f vfat users,rw,owner,unmask=000 0 0
    /dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d vfat users,rw,owner,unmask=000 0 0
    /dev/hda6 /mnt/win_k vfat users,rw,owner,unmask=000 0 0
    /dev/hda7 /mnt/win_e vfat users,rw,owner,unmask=000 0 0
    /dev/hda8 /mnt/win_j vfat users,rw,owner,unmask=000 0 0
    /dev/hdd /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t ,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t ,exec,noauto,managed 0 0





    and the error when i say #mount -a

    [root@mysterio tarun]# mount -a
    [mntent]: warning: no final newline at the end of /etc/fstab
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
    or too many mounted file systems
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda2,
    or too many mounted file systems
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda5,
    or too many mounted file systems
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda6,

    or too many mounted file systems
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda8,

    There's no such option as "unmask", it's "umask". That may be causing your problems, so fix that and get back to us if it's still not working.
