Here's the patch to mount to tell it to write the commands needed to
re-create the current mount table.

Users of Win9x might be confused if they create the commands from a bash
prompt and then try to run the resulting file from command.com.  In my
system (which has binary mount points),
   mount -m > file
produced a file with NL line endings which command.com chokes on.  Running
the same command from the MSDOS prompt produced a file with CRLF line
