Code:
/dev/hda5 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda9 /backups ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda7 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-15,sync,codepage=850 0 0
/dev/hda8 /music ext3 defaults 1 2

defaults implies options: rw, suid, dev, exec, auto, nouser, and async. Which negates the option user.

/dev/hda1 /windows vfat user,umask=000 0 0

True it is not under man fstab or man mount. I forget but it is somewhere. I believe it is in some source files for the commands. Been a long time ago. Lots of info on this here and the internet.
