More on boot/mount

I asked:
How do you mount all the drives/partitions at boot time without having to
actually type in the mount -t msdos /.... command?

And the responce (thanks) was to add entries to the fstab file. Well, I did
this and when I rebooted, i wasn't able to perform many commands. It was like
root and other accounts had a messed up path. I could ls and shutdown, but I
couldn't man or dselect. I took the mounting lines out and that fixed it back
to normal. Why would that be?
ps- thanks to all who gave me the dpkg --force... help. It worked wonders..
and I didn't need to reinstall pine/pico, because they were already made...
