Chapther 6, "Mounting Virtual Kernel File Systems", there is the following 
paragraph at the end:

"The mount commands executed above may result in the following warning 
message: can't open /etc/fstab: No such file or directory. This file
—/etc/fstab—has not been created yet but is also not required for the file 
systems to be properly mounted. As such, the warning can be safely ignored."

Actually, that warning will never happen at this stage (we are still outside 
of chroot). I think it should be removed or moved to the "Mounting ramfs and 
Populating /dev" section, where then it may happen.
