external hard drive


I tried to set up my new external hard drive (Samsung 160 GB, FDB 3.5"  
SP1604N) using Kernel 2.4.22-xfs. 

I used fdisk to partition the hard drive into 3 approx. 50 GB partitions - 
worked fine. Then I added in /etc/fstab

/dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 auto noauto,users,exec 0 0 
/dev/sda2 /mnt/sda2 auto noauto,users,exec 0 0 
/dev/sda3 /mnt/sda3 vfat noauto,users,exec 0 0

and did for each mkdir /mnt/sda1 
2 and 3 respectively

but when I do:
mount /dev/sda1 I get 
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda2,
       or too many mounted file systems

after I rebooted I tried to run fdisk /dev/sda or sda1 but I receive an error: 
Unable to open /dev/sda3

any idea how to solve that? TIA Martin
