It would help to know what the device is. Most USB storage devices
are mounted automatically in FC5, without needing anything in
/etc/fstab. When you plug in the device, udev should be creating the
/dev entries and HAL then mounts it. If there is an entry in
/etc/fstab, then HAL aborts trying to mount the device.
