chapter 7: creating /etc/fstab

A small thing:  

# Begin /etc/fstab

/dev/<LFS-partition designation> / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/<swap-partition designation> swap swap defaults 0 0
-  none /proc proc defaults 0 0
+  proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

# End /etc/fstab

I'm trying to get automatic fscking working (not yet), and 
ran across this recommendation in the mount man page:

" (The  customary  choice  none is less fortunate: the error
       message `none busy' from umount can be confusing.)"

Chapter 6: Mounting $LFS/proc file system already has:

    mount proc $LFS/proc -t proc
