/etc/fstab-usually to mount the filesystem we use the mount command but that is only for the current session. to mount the filesystem at boot time automatically we use /etc/fstab. pattern of /etc/fstab device mount point filesystem mount options dump fsck example label=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1 label=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2 none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0 none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 label=/home /home ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 2 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 label=/usr /usr ext3 defaults 1 2 label=/var1 /var ext3 defaults 1 2 label=swap-hda7 swap swap defaults
