I found a great tutorial on how to use fstab: http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html
Using this tutorial, I was able to successfully get my SIMPLE mounting needs working. But during the article it says "I won't discuss [the dump and fschk options] in great length here (they would both need their own tuXfile)".
- When is it good to use the "dump" option? How do you use the "dump" option?
- When is it good to use the "fsck" option? How do you use the "fsck" option?
( Correct me if I am wrong but the dump option looks like could be useful for setting up auto-backups of a mounted drive (i.e. mount a network drive, then auto-backup the networked drive to a local harddrive where the network drive is currently mounted). )
