Hadn't yet, but have since done so. Got a prompt that asked about editing
/etc/rc.local. Said "Yes", the editor came up. /etc/rc.local was mostly
empty, just a few comments. It seemed safer to change nothing. After leaving
the editor, setup itself added a "/setup/fun/" line to /etc/rc.local,
and so now fstab resides in both /etc and /setup/cnf/sources. Success!

Still doesn't load my vfat drive on bootup though. I might add a 'mount -av'
command in some local autoexec.bat-type file, but that wouldn't be official or
standard mu, would it?
