Additional partitions can be added in fstab by selecting them during the 
partitioning stage, selecting the current filesystem present on them and 
assigning them a mountpoint.
(You should make sure that such partitions are not listed as "will be 
formatted" in the confirmation dialog.)

There are no plans to add partitions to the fstab automatically. A lot of 
users would not appreciate that.
