MOUNT_FFS(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			     MOUNT_FFS(8)

NAME
     mount_ffs, mount_ufs -- mount a Berkeley Fast File System

SYNOPSIS
     mount_ffs [-o options] special node

DESCRIPTION
     The mount_ffs command attaches the Berkeley Fast File System on the special device on to the
     file system tree at point node.  Both special and node are converted to absolute paths
     before use.

     The mount_ufs form of the command is meant for backward compatibility only.  Fast File Sys-
     tems should no longer be listed as type ``ufs'' in fstab(5) and instead should be listed as
     type ``ffs''.

     This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time.  The options are as follows:

     -o      Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma separated string of
	     options.  See the mount(8) man page for possible options and their meanings.

     Writes in the Fast File System", Proceedings of the FREENIX track: 1999 USENIX Annual
     Technical Conference, pp. 1-17, June 1999.

HISTORY
     A mount_ffs command appeared in NetBSD 1.1.

BUGS
     It is possible for a corrupted file system to cause a crash.
