Response to: fstab error

I had the same initial problem with the "inappropriate filetype or format". I am installing FreeBSD 6.2

Examining /etc/fstab revealed that my edits had caused the last 2 fields (Dump, Pass#) to wrap onto a new line! Carefully editing /etc/fstab to put the values back on the same line corrected the problem - verified that the messages did not appear after a reboot.
