mount, umount - mount and dismount file system
/etc/mount [ special name [ -r ] ]
Mount announces to the system that a removable file system is present on the device spe-
cial. The file name must exist already; it must be a directory (unless the root of the
mounted file system is not a directory). It becomes the name of the newly mounted root.
The optional last argument indicates that the file system is to be mounted read-only.
Umount announces to the system that the removable file system previously mounted on device
special is to be removed.
These commands maintain a table of mounted devices. If invoked without an argument, mount
prints the table.
Physically write-protected and magnetic tape file systems must be mounted read-only or
errors will occur when access times are updated, whether or not any explicit write is
/etc/mtab: mount table
Mounting file systems full of garbage will crash the system.
Mounting a root directory on a non-directory makes some apparently good pathnames invalid.
