Currently, in my fstab file I have this

xxxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.com:/vol/cccccccccc_path/path /public/mountpoint nfs rw,bg,hard,nointr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,actimeo=120,vers=3,timeo=600       0 0

I need to sed the following xxx5beta

after xxx_xxx_xxx so it looks like this

xxxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.com:/vol/cccccccccc_path/path /public/mountpoint nfs rw,bg,hard,nointr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,actimeo=120,vers=3,timeo=600       0 0

First with a sed script that works gets the points

sed 's#xxx_xxxxx_xxx#xxx_xxx_xxx/xxxxbeta#' /etc/fstab > fstab.new

If OK:

mv fstab.new /etc/fstab

I need to write to /etc/fstab directly - this'll be as part of an RPM
