fstab to define mounts on boot

I'm attempting to edit /etc/fstab so I can have my drives/partitions mount on boot, but the editing of the file I am usre of.

I have the following mounts I want to add to the fstab:

/dev/hde1 /apps
/dev/hdh1 /alpha
/dev/hdh2 /beta
/dev/hdh3 /cappa

Using /dev/hde1 as an example, would the following be a correct entry for fstab?

/dev/hde1 /apps ext3 defaults 0 0

Any help would be appreciated, and thanks in advance for the effort(s)!

That's basically correct, though you might want specific elements for specific purposes - depends on what they're for and how they're to be used. The format's correct and would get it mounted, though. Check out the 'fstab' and 'mount' man pages for more details.
