_mount linux centric?

_mount under solaris doesn't work.  It gives an error of:

_mount:758: no such file or directory: /etc/mtab

Mainly because the same file is called /etc/mntab rather than /etc/mtab.

           is mounted.

           The file system type of the mounted file system.

           The mount options. (See respective mount  file  system
           man page in SEE ALSO.)

     time  The time at which the file system was mounted.

And under debian it seems to be:

	special   mount_point   fstype   options   ???   ???

So the conversion SHOULD be simple...  However s,/etc/mtab,/etc/mnttab,g
didn't work.
