bind mount in fstab

A good place to look if you want to figure out how to convert a command line mount to a fstab mount is /etc/mtab.

For example:

/dev/sda1 / xfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/sda3 /home xfs defaults 0 0
/dev/sda4 /export xfs defaults 0 0

#
/home/fastbase/tcl /export/apps/fastbase none defaults,bind 0 0

    So the basic syntax is:

    #Mount dir1 onto dir2
    dir1 dir2 none defaults,bind 0 0

    Works well, thank you good sir!

    Typed "fstab bind" into firefox and found this gem.
    Not only does it answer my question, but also any related questions by simply saying "look at mtab"

    Internet is being helpful today.
