fstab problem

Greetings all,

I have a problem with my /etc/fstab and the system cannot boot.
I copied a fstab file from another machine, but I fogot that the file
system of the root volume on that machine is ext3 but the one I have
is XFS, so the system cannot boot anymore.
Luckily I have a LiveCD and I boot the LiveCD system and change the fstab:

# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda3       /               xfs     defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/hda8       /boot           ext3    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda9       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0

but the system can only boot to runlevel 2, and the message said that
the '/' is not mounted yet (wrong option).
So, how can I write a correct fstab?

Thanks very much!
