Default changes to fstab

Without knowing exactly what I was doing I simplified the /etc/fstab
file to this:

karl@karl-desktop:/etc$ cat fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/hda8
UUID=a9c1cb61-ddfd-44f6-88b0-6dc976daf9ca / ext3
defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /dev/hda1
UUID=7915f630-518c-425b-9fea-0ef07e50d0f9 none swap
sw 0 0
# /dev/sda2
UUID=7d8c37ed-b2ec-4008-a137-f24c6659c5ab none swap
sw 0 0
# /dev/hdb /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0 0
karl@karl-desktop:/etc$

As you see all the things having to do with other partitions is gone
from the file. But I had a problem. When I tried to reboot it would go
part way down and then hang. I tried next opening a terminal and using
sudo reboot and that worked fine. But as Ubuntu went down it complained
about things.

So I looked and found there was still a lot of files off of /media.
They were all partition names so I removed them all. Tried a normal
reboot and it did the right thing now.

Does anyone know what the last line in the file does? It seems to
connect /dev/hdb to cdrom0 and I have no idea why.

It would, if it wasn't commented out...
