    Make sure that you actually create the mount point prior to attempting to mount the drive.
    Code:
    mkdrir /mnt/sda3

    This happened to me after a HDD install.

    As =Tron= says make corresponding directories in th /mnt folder.
    Use th konsole
    mkdir /mnt/sda3

    You may need to manually edit th fstab file, it is in th /etc folder.
    my fstab looks like this:

    aufs / aufs defaults 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    /dev/hdc /mnt/hdc iso9660 noauto,users,exec 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 vfat auto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec,quiet,umask=0,che ck=s,shortname=mixed 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    /dev/sda2 /mnt/sda2 ntfs-3g auto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec,locale= 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    /dev/sda4 /mnt/sda4 ext3 auto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    /dev/sda5 /mnt/sda5 swap auto,defaults 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    /dev/sda6 /mnt/sda6 ntfs-3g auto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec,locale= 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy vfat noauto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    /dev/sdc1 /mnt/sdc1 vfat auto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec,quiet,umask=0,che ck=s,shortname=mixed 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    /dev/sdc2 /mnt/sdc2 ext2 auto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec 0 0 # AutoUpdate
    /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1 ntfs auto,noatime,users,suid,dev,exec,rw 0 0 # AutoUpdate
