I'm having some fun with mounting a spare drive, it just won't mount on startup.
I have included the fstab at the end, hda2 is the problem partition.
After startup, the drive is not mounted.

Any pointers on where to look, how otherwise to proceed in debugging
this, etc, would be greatly appreciated.
