Why are you mounting a hard drive partition onto the /net mount point?
The auto-fs daemon (presuming it has the same name in FC6) uses it to
auto-mount network shares.

e.g. If one had a computer called "fred" on your network, and it was
sharing out a directory called "flintstone" using NFS or SMB (at least),
then if you issued "cd /net/fred/flintstone" that share would be
auto-mounted there.

Using /mnt, or a subdirectory within it, is the usual way to add extra
drives to the directory tree.  Or, there's nothing stopping you creating
a new mount point for your drives.  e.g. /sparespace
