When I installed Fedora 9 via network installation, I put installation
images on /boot (mounted on /dev/sda1). After months, I noticed that this
partition /dev/sda1 was not auto mounted to /boot but as a media, see
below
/dev/sda1               197625     45289    142132  25% /media/_boot

All updated kernel stuff are stored at /boot but mounted on
/dev/sda2              8066196   4789696   2866748  63% /

What's a sensible way to restore or remount /dev/sda1 no /boot and put
updated kernel images back to /boot (on /dev/sda1)?


my fstab looks like this

Couldn't you add a newline liek the following?

/dev/sda1              /boot                       ext3    defaults
 1 1


What's the differenty between

/dev/sda1              /boot                       ext3    defaults
 1  1

and

/dev/sda1              /boot                       ext3    defaults
 1  2

??

Jeeze!  Doesn't ANYONE read the man pages before posting on the list?
I don't mean to be snippy, but "man -k" and "apropos" are your friends.

From "man fstab":

"The sixth field, (fs_passno), is used by the fsck(8) program to deter-
mine the order in which filesystem checks are done at reboot time.  The
root filesystem should be specified with a fs_passno of 1, and other
filesystems should have a fs_passno of 2."
