Actually I don't think that's true with the current LFS bootscripts; I 
use XFS as my root filesystems here, and even with "0 0" in the fstab it 
stills tries to fsck them (which is pointless seeing as XFS doesn't have 
an fsck tool at all <G>).

I don't believe the bootscripts pay any attention to fstab until after 
they've completed all their root-filesystem work.
