The last entry is the fsck order used at boot. Setting it to 2 probably
prompts the system to check it.

Anyway, you shouldn't need to add explicit entries to fstab to mount usb
drives. They should get auto mounted when you plug them in (I think the
autofs and haldaemon services are required to run for this to happen).


mount -t life -o ro /dev/dna /genetic/research
