Mount permanently

Running ProFTPd, so I am creating directories on which I do a mount --bind so that users can have access to different directories on different mounts of the file system from within their /home/ directory.

Question: Is there a command line switch that will automatically add the mount to fstab?

If not, how do I add this command to fstab:

mount --bind /mnt/server/some/dir /home/userdir

?

Thanks in advance.

Before you can run this command, you need to have mounted the 'server' concerned? I presume that this will be required to run once at startup? If so, add the above mount command to the /etc/rc.local (or equivalent). The commands in this file are run after the /etc/fstab directives have been carried out, and all the normal processes have started.

That should achieve what you require.
