solaris way if interpreting devices?

Hi all,

I wanted to know the solaris way of interpreting devices?
I mean i understand all those c0t0....stuff but when i start mounting devices , most of the times i get either a I/O error or it says that the directory does not exist.

I have a external usb hub to which i have connected a pen drive and a usb receiver(for the mouse), 2 other slots are empty, but when i make use of /etc/vfstab or /etc/mnttab to find out the devices currently mounted or all the present devices currennly attached to system...
I am unable to find out what i need..

Also wanted to know if mounting can be done while running on a live cd?

I guess my understanding of these interpretations needs some polishing..
Please do help me

You shouldn't care that much of device names as long as you use the automounter, or hal with latest releases.

You certainly can mount devices with a live CD.
