"This text file is the file you edit if you wanted to
mount a partition permanently once the system boots. One point to
note, this file lists potential partitions that can be mounted, it
does not however guarantee that they are actually mounted. If you
wanted to see the mounted partitions you could either use the df
command or you can view /etc/mstab, see below. Need more
information about Linux Administration, check out the CentOS Server
Course or the Ubuntu Server Course.
"The file /etc/fstab is divided into label, mount point, file
system, options, dump order and fsck order.
" The local devices are labeled by e2label so that each local
mount point will have a Label. The example below shows the label as
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2
"Mounts that are not local will not be labeled in this way."
