In the /etc/fstab, the entry the corresponds to the filesystem you
want to have mounted at boot time should have a 1 in the fifth field.
A 0 in this field indicates that it should not be mounted at boot
time.  The number in the sixth field indicates the sequence in 
which this filesystem is mounted.  DOS and windows partitions should
have a 2 here.
