fstab is only used for swap and fsck on GNU. if you want a node that persists
over reboots pass -p to settrans (see settrans --help)

we don't have support for "auto" filesystems (although an auto translator
would be cool)

I don't play with fstab for cdroms but maybe if you try:

/dev/hd2 /cdrom iso ro 0 0

that'd work for mount

the recommended solution is not to use fstab for that, though
(and using settrans instead of mount/umount)

settrans -a /floppy /hurd/something /dev/fd0

depending on the floppy filesystem. vfat is partialy supported

we don't have umount? how about:

settrans -fg $1

could someone put an umount in the CVS?
