Installation code 17 Modifying /etc/fstab for your machine
Your Gentoo Linux system is almost ready for use. All we need to do now is configure a few important system files and install the boot loader. The first file we need to configure is /etc/fstab. Remember that you should use the notail option for your boot partition if you chose to create a ReiserFS filesystem on it. Remember to specify ext2, ext3 or reiserfs filesystem types as appropriate.
Use something like the /etc/fstab listed below, but of course be sure to replace "BOOT", "ROOT" and "SWAP" with the actual block devices you are using (such as hda1, etc.)
Code listing 17.1: Editing fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# noatime turns off atimes for increased performance (atimes normally aren't
# needed; notail increases performance of ReiserFS (at the expense of storage
# efficiency). It is safe to drop the noatime options if you want and to
# switch between notail and tail freely.
# <fs> <mount point> <type> <opts> <dump/pass>
# NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts.
/dev/BOOT /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 2
/dev/ROOT / ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/SWAP none swap sw 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
Warning: Please notice that /boot is NOT mounted at boot time. This is to protect the data in /boot from corruption. If you need to access /boot, please mount it!
