fstab file entries what do they mean?
 
Can someone please explain what the entries mean, or point to a web page that talks about fstab entries? I've found a couple of web sites but they don't go into a lot of detail and I wound up with more questions than I originally had. I'm talking about things like subfs, procuid, user, nosuid, fs=floppyfss, etc. I'm trying to get an internal atapi zip drive installed. I'm close to having it work but there are still a few rough edges. My fstab file entry for the zip drive is:
/dev/hdd4 /media/zipdos subfs fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,user 0 0

I have the suse version 9.1 pro distribution; kernel 2.6.4-52

col 2: the directory where the device will be mounted
col 3: the filesystem
col 4: options

type: man mount
to see what those options mean

Thanks for the information, I didn't realize all that info about fstab was in the man pages. Next time I'll look there first.
