I doubt it. What version of Solaris are you using?
On Solaris 8, I ran 'man -k mount_' and got this:
HTML Code:
mount_cachefs   mount_cachefs (1m)  - mount CacheFS file systems
mount_hsfs      mount_hsfs (1m) - mount hsfs file systems
mount_nfs       mount_nfs (1m)  - mount remote NFS resources
mount_pcfs      mount_pcfs (1m) - mount pcfs file systems
mount_s5fs      mount_s5fs (1m) - mount s5 file systems
mount_tmpfs     mount_tmpfs (1m)    - mount tmpfs file systems
mount_udfs      mount_udfs (1m) -  mount a udfs file system
mount_ufs       mount_ufs (1m)  - mount ufs file systems
mount_xmemfs    mount_xmemfs (1m)   - mount xmemfs file systems
I don't think that you would be able to mount any filesystems other than these without first installing the appropriate drivers.
