It's just that your df -ha command doesn't list any /dev/sda5 partition, 
therefore it can't be mounted...  Unless you manually mount it every 
time you boot.  Here's my df listing on my file server.  This server has 
4 seperate hard drives.  The "main" hard drive is 80GB and has 3 
partitons, the root (/), the web servers partition (/www) and swap.  The 
other three have only one partition per drive and use reiserfs.  As you 
can see each /dev/sd*X* is clearly listed...  So why isn't your 40GB 
/dev/sda5 listed?  Because it's not mounted.  You would need a line in 
your /etc/fstab file such as:

/dev/sda5   /media/disk-1    ext3    defaults    0    2

Then reboot (or run sudo mount -a)

But, this would result in the files that are in /media/disk-1 to be 
"mounted over" by the partition.  The "proper" way (The Ubuntu way) is 
to make a directory sda5 in /media and mount it there.  I don't follow 
convention either and mount my disks in a directory /big.  Why?  Because 
I plug in alot of USB keys and USB Hard drives in to copy files to the 
server and then rm -rf /media/diskX/filestodelete* and don't want to 
take the chance of wiping a terabyte of data off the servers internal

Here's the /etc/fstab file:

Hope this clears up my confusion...
