fstab file format - numbers at the end
What do the 2 numbers at the end of every entry in the fstab file mean? I'm currently trying to set up my computer so it recognises my old partitions each time I boot.

They determine whether the filesystem should be backed up (dumped) and/or checked. Did you look at man fstab?

No i did not. I thought the manual only covered commands and not basic file formats - thanks for the tip

Remember that for later... their are many other files covered in there. Also, don't forget 'apropos' or 'man -k'.
