    ok, this will be the first post of many explaing how stuff in Linux / Unix works

    well if i had to pick just one file (ignoring all Kernel stuff) that is most important to a working *nix (all varieties of Linux & Unix) then i would choose the fstab file, because it handles were each filesystem (FS) is and its type and mount options (will become clear later)

    the fstab is usually located in
    it i separated by each FS using a different line
    now as you can see each FS / Partition uses a separate line to define a FS
    the first column contains the device location and the second contains the mount point (location were the FS will be when a system has booted

    this post is not finished
