Post mount --bind on boot

Hey... I would like to "mount --bind" a few directories at startup. I know there's something to do with fstab, but i didn't know if you could include statements in there that will accomplish the same as mount --bind /olddir /newdir

any help is appreciated

I am not 100% sure but yes, however the syntax in fstab is slightly different. Use man fstab that should help. sorry if it wasn't much help.
