Spaces in the paths within the fstab file

To add an entry in the /etc/fstab file for a path that has a space use the \040 escape sequence

//server/share\040with\040spaces /mnt/mount\040point  etc.....

This would mount a windows share called "share with spaces" to a local directory called "/mnt/mount point" Note this could be used on a NFS, or even local mount point.
