A newline is also known as a carriage return, enter, etc.  fstab wants
you to put one at the end of the last line, so it knows the line
terminates.  Just curious - is the above cut slightly off, or do you
really have only one number at the end of most columns?  There should be
two, like with /dev/hdd.
