To edit fstab, or any system file for that matter, you need to edit
the file with root access.  To do this, type this in a Konsole

kdesu kate /etc/fstab

This should bring up a dialog asking for your user password.  After
you enter your user password, kate (KDE Advanced Text Editor) should
come up with the file.  From there you should be able to make changes
to the file.  As for what you need to change, maybe someone else can
help you with that.
