The fifth field is used by the dump command for creating backups. The Sixth field is used by fsck (file system checking utility) to determine which filesystems should be checked at boot time. The value of the sixth field detemines the order by which the filesystems are checked. "0 0" means the filesystem is not backed up via the dump command and not checked at boot.

Here is a complete description of the fstab fields
