"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.

"Understanding /etc/fstab

"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.

 LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2

"Mounts that are not local will not be labeled in this way."
