so my /etc/fstab looks like this:

#begin /etc/fstab

# filesystem  mount-point    fs-type  options         dump   fsck-order

/dev/hdb1     /              ext2     defaults        1      1
/dev/hdb2     swap           swap     pri=1           0      0
proc          /proc          proc     defaults        0      0
devpts        /dev/pts       devpts   gid=4,mode=620  0      0
shm           /dev/shm       tmpfs    defaults        0      0
#usbfs         /proc/bus/usb  usbfs    defaults        0      0

#end /etc/fstab

i set the fs-type to ext2, should i follow the books example and set 

and the partiton skeme:(i hope u have mean that, couse i'm not sure if 
there is a diffrence betwen a skeme and table)

Disk /dev/hdb: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 4865 cylinders
