In the options section, where one normally writes default, at the 'noauto' parameter, such that you would have:
/dev/hda1 / defaults 1 1 # A regular entry, mounted at boot
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy defaults,noauto 1 1 # An entry that won't be mounted at boot
JFYI, the 'noauto' switch is called such because the entry is skipped when mount is called with the auto switch (mount -a) in the bootscripts,
where it automatically mounts most drives. (Guess that one doesn't need any explanation :)
