Fedora Core 5: Automounting usb disk on boot



I reformatted a 250 USB gb disk (LACIE) to ext3 and it works fine. It
mounts when I start my gnome session, but if I reboot the disk is not
mounted. I labelled it "Backup" so it always mounts as
/media/Backup. I read around and found a suggestion to add the
following line to my /etc/fstab:

LABEL=Backup            /media/Backup           ext3 auto,hotplug,defaults 1 2

I did this and the boot process would stop and enter in a loop and
freeze. I had to boot from a Ubuntu Live CD and change the fstab file
manually to get back my fedora. 

What is wrong with this line and how can I mount the Usb disk before
starting a gnome session?
