Do you mean you have space on the disk that's not part of the current
partition? For example, you have 40GB of an 80GB drive allocated to
MacOS X as a HFS+ volume and the rest is not allocated? Or is the
unused space a separate volume that's unmounted and you want to mount
it, supposedly using /etc/fstab.
Don't know if MacOS X will mount HFS volumes, only HFS+ volumes. I
partitioned my hard drive to give 20GB to MacOS 9 and 60GB to MacOS X in
HFS+ format. Both are mounted automatically. When I first did this
under MacOS 9.2, Disk Setup also offered a UFS format but MacOS 9 didn't
mount that. Some backup utilities don't support it either (like
Retrospect). Had to wipe both filesytems to reformat to be HFS+.
Can you explain what you're trying to do here more fully?
