fstab stand's for File System TABle. It is where the system administrator can tell the OS about any filesystems the machine may have access to. It also allows default parameters to be provided for each filesystem.
A typical fstab looks something like the following:

#
# /etc/fstab
#
# <device> <mountpoint> <filesystemtype><options> <dump> <fsckorder>

/dev/hdb5 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdb2 /home ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro,user 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/dos/c msdos defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/dos/d msdos defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy ext2 noauto,user 0 0
/dev/hdb4 none ignore defaults 0 0

none /proc proc defaults
/dev/hdb3 none swap sw



this fstab file automatically mounts all the drives which evr ur specified at the time of boot. please gouthru that file and comment that perticular demaon if it is mounted.

Thanks for your answer, but I think you have missunderstood my intention I know fstab already, and my question was to disable automount logging stuff to /var/log/messages, not disable it completely
