At first the root filesystem is mounted as readonly and in the booting process it is remounted as readwrite.

Hi
What is the importance of /etc/mtab
and what is meant by mounting filesystem without writing /etc/mtab ?
Thanks

Mounting otion -n
Mount without writing in /etc/mtab. This is necessary for example when /etc is on a read-only file system.
In Advance .......

The last line is just my signature. My point is that the kernel needs to be loaded to be able to mount the LVM partition and some types of raid. It is usually a good idea to have a separate /boot partition. It is small and can be easily backed up and restored in an emergency.
