Cant separate variables

Hey guys, new not being able to seperate variables.

the code runs like this...

OPTIONS=$(awk '{print $2}' /etc/fstab}

a=$(zenity --list --text "Mount points selection" --radiolist --column "choice" --column "mountpt" FALSE $OPTIONS); echo $a

Note: the result i get is that zenity displays all the mountpoints as a single option in zenity. Not like each mount point having one radio button each. Help please...
