Mounting partitions, bizare question...

The situation is this : I have two disks, 'hda' which holds my stable
Hoary and data/home partition, and 'hdb' with Breezy.
Breezy is 3 month old and very usable, so I spend most of time in it,
mostly to watch progress closely, and report bugs.
So, in order to access my data, I mounted my home partition from Hoary.
Well actually, the Breezy installer did it for me for a change, and put
it in /media/hda5.
The line in fstab looks like this :
/dev/hda5 /media/hda5 ext3 defaults 0 2
Whenever I browse to that partition to access my data, I have to first
enter my user directory : /home/vincent.
I wonder if there would be a way, for the system to put me directly
into /home/vincent (instead of the root directory /home), when I browse
this partition, or 'cd' to it at the command line.
this way if I do: "cd /media/hda5", instead of seeing :
I will already be 'vincent'.
Does fstab support that kind of option ? What's the syntax ? something
like this maybe ?
/dev/hda5:vincent /media/hda5 ext3 defaults
Thanks for any info...
