Re: question about the entry in /etc/fstab

Hi,

Take a look at the man page for mount for more details:

ro - mount read only
users - any user can unmount the filesystem
noexec - don't allow execution of binaries
nosuid - don't allow setuid or setgid to happen
nodev - don't interpret block or character special devices
noauto - can't be mounted by 'mount -a' (automatically)
umask=002 - set the umask of the permissions not present
0 0 - The first value is for the dump command to determine which filesystems should be dumped. The second value is used by fsck to determine the order of which filesystems get checked at boot time.
