That is the first time I have seen this...
Thanks for that, it worked.
I didn't delete the lines for the two partitions I could not see, I just "remarked" them out with a (#),
rebooted, and there they were in the file browser, and accessible with password, as you mentioned.

/dev/sda1 and /dev/sda4 have no mount points. Try to create folders to mount them and then point fstab to these folders.
First mount them manually just to check.
# mkdir /mnt/sda1
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
Thanks for the feedback, secipolla!
I am a bit of a Linux newbie, and not sure how to do that.
I did find a thread by "fred" on auto-mounting partitions, and I see its what you are talking about.
I don't really NEED to auto-mount them. I just wanted to be able to SEE them, but I will read that thread thoroughly and try it out, to learn how to auto-mount. I was not even aware that could be done...
