perhaps you are just trying to use too much muscle

why not just let it mount like it does and use a bind mount elsewhere...

mount --bind /media/disk /mnt/c_drive

Hi Steve,
I think that this issue has been discussed in prior releases of  Fedora....you can scan the archives for more detailed information.  If my memory serves me correctly, I think that the initial part of fstab for static devices is preserved and you should put your entries there.  The non-static devices are added/appended to the end of fstab and upon reboot and any entries added to that portion will be "flushed."
When mounting windows partitions in prior installs of Fedora I would put them immediately after the "logvol" entries and thereafter had no problems.  This should work for you with FC8.  I hope that this is of some assistance to you.  Regarding fuse partitions I am sorry that I have no experience to offer to you in this area.
