>You should create /etc/fstab, with the one line I've identified as being
correct; if you wish, you may create /etc/fstab as a copy of
/etc/fstab.sample, then delete the unwanted lines.

Alright, so there was an fstab file inside /etc, though there hadn't been before. Did one of the commands you told me to enter make one? I'm rather new with using a command prompt. However, I edited the file and added the one line that I had originally put into fstab.sample, and then I took out that line from sample, and the program compiled correctly! It was very exciting, thank you for all of the help! Is there anything I need to do to make sure I've got it all set up correctly now to run things through msys?
