Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I don't see a noauto option. Is it hiding somewhere?
Also, if I say the following then it seems that /dev/sda3 is ext2 and not ext3 (as YaST says).
b104pc110 /root# mount /dev/sda3 /tydelik
b104pc110 /root# mount
/dev/sda6 on / type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)
/dev/sdb5 on /chemistry type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
/dev/sda7 on /code type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
/dev/sda8 on /final type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
/dev/sda1 on /windows/C type ntfs (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,gid=100,umask=0002,nls=utf8)
/dev/sda2 on /windows/D type ntfs (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,gid=100,umask=0002,nls=utf8)
securityfs on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)
/dev/sda3 on /tydelik type ext2 (rw)
Firstly, how do I specify /dev/sda3 to be mounted by default (because I thought it would unless there is a noauto specified), and secondly, why is YaST not showing the same settings as when I say "mount" ?
Well I'd wonder if they weren't the same issue, as if there is no valid journal on the filesystem then it will only be mountable as ext2, so fstab's mounting options will fail. You could just change the filesystem type in fstab to auto and it'll presumably also mount it as ext2 that way. if you just create a new journal ("tune2fs -j /dev/sda3" if I recall correctly) then it should clear up both perceived issues.
