6. Creating /etc/fstab

(Common to both Red Hat and Slackware distributions)

The last thing that needs to be done before rebooting is to create the fstab file on the soon to be root partion. The following is what you should have as a minimum for /iomega/etc/fstab:

  /dev/sda1      /         ext2        defaults   1   1
  /dev/sda2      none      swap        sw
  none           /proc     proc        defaults   1   1

Save the file, and reboot with the freshly made boot floppy and enjoy!
