Re: fstab file


     Your best bet is to bring up a nice big xterm and fire up pico or Joe;
scroll though the file and remove all of the tabs (they make your cursor jump
farther than it should).

    I think you have some embeded tabs here, judging from the change in alignment.
Okay, here's an idea - fire up pico again and open the file; put your cursor just
before the backlash and hit enter. This should take care of lines 1, 2, 8 and 10.
Bring the '0 0' from lines 8 and 10 onto the previous line where they should be,
and delete the blank lines.

     Perhaps that should be added to the apps list we were talking about. I'll do it. :)

     MO drive?

     Hope this helps (I have to shut down now, unfortunately)

     Keep plugging and keep saving backups of your fstab file as you go (fstab1.backup,
fstab2.backup, etc...). I'll be back on tomorrow morning around 07:30 EDT or so to check in,
so please let me know how it goes.
