If you don't want anything special, just use defaults.

Thanks mike. I did research all the options including default but after reading it's description I wasn't sure about it either. But I tried it and it worked fine. Thanks again.

You might want to read the mount and mount.ext4 man pages for more information about the options available. Some may be useful to you.
