Interpreting File: /etc/fstab

Enter the drive into the fstab file so that it is recognized and mounted upon system boot.

File: /etc/fstab Red Hat 8.0

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /opt2 ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0

The digits “1 2” refer to whether the mount point should be backed up when the dump command is used and disk integrity checks using fsck. The “1” states that it should be backed up when the dump command is issued (0=no). The “2” refers to the order in which “fsck” should check the mount points. The digit “1” identifies the root (“/”) of the filesystem. All others should be “2”. (0=no check)

Also see: fstab man page for a description of all options.
