Thanks for the advice. I tried first the manual mounting which didn't
work although konsole accepted the change. The modification of fstab
I noticed then that I have an error message in / options in fstab. Do I
also have to change the mount point for swap to be swap?
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda1 /media/hda1 ntfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 /media/hda2 ntfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 /home ext3 defaults 0 2
/dev/hda6 none swap sw 0 0
