    man fstab:
    The fourth field, (fs_mntops), describes the mount options
    associated with the filesystem.  It is formatted as a comma
    separated list of options.  It contains at least the type of mount
    (see fs_type below) plus any additional options appropriate to the
    filesystem type.  See the options flag (-o) in the mount(8) page and
    the filesystem specific page, such as mount_nfs(8), for additional
    options that may be specified.

    if you want to add those options to, say your floppy mount, you
    could change
    /dev/fd0    /floppy    ufs    rw,noauto    0    0
    /dev/fd0    /floppy    ufs    rw,noauto,nodev,noexec,nosuid    0    0
