I've been haveing problems mounting hda5 onto my Fedora core 3 file system. I went into the root user, and added the following line into /ect/fstab (as instructed to do by someone on this site):

/dev/hda5 /home/myfiles vfat users,unmask=000 0 0

This fixes the problem, but only when I am in the root user. When I try to go to this partition, I got the following error message:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad
superblock on /dev/hda5,
or too many mounted file systems.

Please check that the disk is entered correctly.

If anyone knows how to get hda5 to mount on my user, please help!

did you make the folder /home/myfiles if you didn't, thats the problem.

Just go to /home and run mkdir myfiles

What is the type of filesystem at /dev/hda5?

Why not first try to mount it manully using command.
#mount -t vfat /dev/hda5 /home/myfiles

Also I believe you will get the error your getting if you don't have support in your kernel for mounting fat & vfat filesystems. See you have it compiled as a module /sbin/modprobe -a vfat

Should be umask=000 not unmask=000
