Just a small grumble about fstab in the book.

Dear lfs-dev.

The other day I wasn't recalling from memory correctly and I put and e2fs 
entry in /etc/fstab during chapter 6 rather than ext2. It booted, but later 
on I discovered that my fs was not being properly checked. ;)

Anyway my grumble is that in chapter 3 it is suggested to mke2fs and then in 
chapter 6 it says 


*LFS*, *swap* and *fs-type* have to be replaced with the appropriate values 
(/dev/hda2, /dev/hda5 and reiserfs for example).


If ext2 was mentioned here I think it would be better.
