Have you tried changing the fstab "options" column entry?

This may be a stupid question, but where did you come up with your

I'm not Mike, but I suspect he's been looking in the documentation that
comes with the Linux kernel source.

On Fedora Core 4, you can install the kernel-doc RPM, cd to
/usr/share/doc/kernel-doc-2.6.*, and look in the
Documentation/filesystems folder.

Or you can download a tarball of the source, or somewhere like
http://www.linuxhq.com/kernel/v2.6/15/Documentation/filesystems/ .

It's well worth being aware of this documentation -- there's a lot of
good technical points in there.

The mount options Mike referred to are all mentioned in "man mount" actually, at least in FC4.
