     27  <para os="c">Historically, Linux maintains a list of the mounted file systems
     28  in the file <filename>/etc/mtab</filename>. Modern kernels maintain this list
     29  internally and exposes it to the user via the
     30  <filename class="directory">/proc</filename> filesystem. To satisfy utilities
     31  that expect the presence of <filename>/etc/mtab</filename>, create the
