If you dualboot the machine, and have been in windows recently, then
reboot to windows, cleanly shutdown, and try again in Fedora. The file
system may not have cleanly unmounted. Otherwise (you don't have
windows) just mount it once by force and then it should stop doing
that... of course there may be a reason it didn't cleanly unmount, but
unless you know the sequence of events that led to it noone else will
either, best you could do it guess.
Actually, I've noticed a similar problem with dual boot, that still
doesn't work quite right:
When F9-pre was first installed, it automatically detected and
auto-mounted my NTFS partition (without an entry in fstab). I've updated
all the packages since then, and now, it won't mount at all when I
double click. Now, I assume an entry in fstab still works, and I have
tested command line mounting, but the initial bug with automounting gave
me the impression that I might be able to go to "Computer", right click
on the partition listed there, and mount it in GNOME, which doesn't
work. The right-click option is there, but it doesn't work (I assume
because I have not specified the user-mountable option in fstab). Also,
the partition has a CD icon, rather than a disk icon, for some reason,
Basically, the drive was initially being treated as an external drive
and being automounted, but now it's properly being treated as an
internal drive that is not specified to be mounted. However, the icon is
still there in "Computer", as though it were an external drive (a CD
drive, as far as the icon is concerned).
All this made me realize that it'd be nice to be able to have the
right-click option to mount work (also double click) for other
partitions on an internal drive, even if it asks for a root password.
