Disappearing entry in FSTAB for Memory Card

I have a listing in FSTAB as follows:

/dev/sdd1            /mnt/memcard            auto      noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0

When I reboot the computer the directory /mnt/memcard and the entry in FSTAB are both deleted.  I have another entry in FSTAB for a memory stick that works just fine.  I have tried booting with the memory card left in and it made no difference.  I have full access to the card once I  enter the FSTAB line.

Any ideas?

I am running Fedora Core 2 with 2.6.8.1 kernel.

Thanks!

It is the option set (noauto,owner,kudzu) that's causing this. The inclusion of kudzu in that set says that the entry is managed by kudzu. Since the device /dev/sdd1 isn't in kudzu's table of devices that it added the entry and its mount point get deleted at the next boot. Change that line to be:

/dev/sdd1          /mnt/memcard          auto     noauto,owner 0 0

and it will persist across boot cycles.
