    automount ntfs drives issue

    i tried to add uuid numbers to my fstab and it looks like this (i use ubuntu 8.10):

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
    # /dev/sda3
    UUID=2f22f78a-79ef-47e3-a053-9e5289758525 /               ext3    relatime,errors=remount-ro 0       1
    # /dev/sda6
    UUID=2b180a47-4441-42a9-9183-ca5f63db4fb5 none            swap    sw              0       0
    /dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0       0
    UUID=FECC0E85CC0E3883 /media/backup ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 0  
    UUID=3A6832B56832702D /media/backup ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 0 
    UUID=84944B06944AF9E6 /media/backup ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 0 
    UUID=2C3056FB3056CB88 /media/backup ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 0 
    UUID=26605BB3605B8907 /media/backup ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 0
    now ubuntu mounts only one drive (even if i click on others) which is /dev/sdb6: UUID="26605BB3605B8907" LABEL="PRIVAT" TYPE="ntfs"
    where did it all go wrong?

    You use the same mount point, /media/backup, for all of your ntfs partitions so that's why the last one will only show up! Try using different mount point for different partition, okay.
