    remove that line from /etc/mtab file. its remounting partition and editing /etc/fstab file on every boot up.

    did you edit both /etc/fstab and /etc/mtab files?
    both files should contain only one line for /dev/hda7.

    casper, how would editing mtab help?
    I thought it was just a list of information on the partitions already mounted. I thought it was more info oriented than actually involved in mounting drives.
