Disable Automount FC4

Well, Ive decided to use dump to backup the entire file system. My question is, how would a noob such as myself disable the auto mount feature? My fstab looks like this...
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot1 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/shm /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sys /sys sysfs defaults 0 0

/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hdb /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

Now i tried to be independent and read the man:fstab-sync but it is very cryptic. I hope to backup the whole system on multiple dvd+rws. Thank you very much in advance.

What do you not want to automount? The option noauto?
