I have no fstab


I can't boot into my slackware box and it's getting annoying using windows. It gets up the fsck portion of the boot sequence and then gives paragraph contained in asterisks and says something that would have me infer that it thinks it's an ext2 filesystem when it's not and to do ext2fsck -v -y or something. Since I have reiserfs I tried:

fsck.reiserfs /dev/hda1,6,etc

but it all came up clean. Booting into knoppix I notice fstab is blank. Does anyone have a default fstab I could look at? (actually, this issue comes up alot with so does anyone know a website that contains most common defaults of config files?) I also tried rebuild-tree but no go. Any other ideas?

edit:
OH sorry, I should mention my partition scheme:
/dev/hda1 > /
/dev/hda2 > extended
/dev/hda5 > swap
/dev/hda6 > /usr
/dev/hda7 > /opt
/dev/hda8 > /home

There isn't a true default /etc/fstab file - it's built based on your partitioning scheme. You can probably start with the following and modify it for what fdisk -l /dev/hda returns:
Code:
/dev/hda1   /       reiserfs   defaults   1   1
/dev/hda5   swap    swap       defaults   0   0
/dev/hda6   /usr    reiserfs   defaults   1   2
/dev/hda7   /opt    reiserfs   defaults   1   2
/dev/hda8   /home   reiserfs   defaults   1   2

They should be something like:
Code:
devpts   /dev/pts   devpts gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc     /proc      proc   defaults         0   0
