Each entry represents a filesystem device.

1. "/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01"   = device name of the partition
2. "/"                                            = mount point
3. "ext3"                                      = type of filesystem
4. "defaults"                                 = mount options
5. "1"                                            = sets the filesytem's archiving option
6. "1"                                            = sets the order for 'fsck' error checking

Why should we not have "any idea"?
