A warning about automounting an MS-DOS partition is necessary.



I suggest the following warning be added to section "MS-DOS FS and Russian Filenames" of the Handbook.

If you use -W option in /etc/fstab, be sure to mount /usr before your
MS-DOS partition because the conversion tables are located in
/usr/libdata/msdosfs, or autoboot will fail.
