Here is a fairly generic fstab from RHEL 4
Code:
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /                      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
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap                   swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/hdc                /media/cdrecorder       auto   pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/fd0                /media/floppy           auto    pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
But, finding out why you don't have one now would be good
You might need to change device names, but the labels should be okay if you didn't do a custom disk setup.

Do a "df -h", your disk might be full.
