I just encountered that also.  I have built a dual-boot system which has F10 on one side and WinXP on the other.  F10 is installed on hd0 and the second partition of hd1, while XP has the first partition of hd0.

 

Under F7 (prior release I was using), I had an fstab entry that automatically mounted the second partition (ext3) of hd1, but the ntfs partition would never get mounted. I don’t want that ntfs partition mounted *AT ALL* under linux.

 

I haven’t had the time to go find the reason and determine how to turn it off.  For right now, I’ve got an intermittent dns problem and Network Manager scribbling a bizarre netmask in my *SUPPOSEDLY* static addressing files for eth0.  I can only handle one bizarre problem at a time under my current work load.  I’ll be watching this thread to see if someone can post a rational for the change and how to turn it off.
