My default install of woody doesn't have a /etc/filesystems file. Is it
the debian default to not make one? /etc/filesystems is one of the ways
mount decides what filesystem types to try. I think most other dists
include one. So if you put:


in that file, mount will always try those first in that order. Read the
mount man page for more info.
