Example /etc/fstab on Mac OS X 10.6 to disable auto-mounting of specific volumes
# You can find the volume UUID in Disk Utility. Select the volume on the left
# and then File->Get Info. See "Universal Unique Identifier".
#
# Options used below:
# ro for readonly (can be omitted)
# noauto to prevent auto-mount
# noatime to skip writing last access times (performance thing, optional)
#
# Remember to set the filesystem type (hfs, ntfs, etc) too

OS X 10.5 and later includes a special utility, vifs, for editing fstab.
