Mount
:- used to mount a file systemAll files accessible in a Unix system are arranged in one big tree, the file hierarchy, rooted at
/
. Thesefiles can be spread out over several devices. The
mount
command serves to attach the file system foundon some device to the big file tree
The standard form of the
mount
command, is
mount -t
type device dir 
 
This tells the kernel to attach the file system found on
device
(which is of type
type
) at the directory
dir 
.The previous contents (if any) and owner and mode of 
dir 
become invisible, and as long as this filesystem remains mounted, the pathname
dir 
refers to the root of the file system on
device
Three forms of invocation do not actually mount anything:-
mount -h
: prints a help message
mount -v
: prints aversion string
mount -l
: lists all mounted file systems
mount --bind olddir newdir :
it is possible to remount part of the file hierarchy somewhere elseThis call attaches only (part of) a single filesystem, not possible submounts.
mount --rbind olddir newdir:
The entire file hierarchy including submounts is attached a second place.
mount --move olddir newdir:
atomically move a subtree to another place.
mount /dev/cdrom:
any user can mount the file system found on his CDROM using this command
 /etc/fstab
: this file may contain lines describing what devices are usually mounted
umount :
used to un mount the mounted file
/etc/mtab :
The programs
mount
and
umount
maintain a list of currently mounted file systems in thefile
 /etc/mtab
mount -a :
mounts all the file systems listed in
fstabmount -n :
Mount without writing in
 /etc/mtab
. This is necessary for example when
 /etc
is on a read-only file system.
mount -r :
Mount the file system read-only. A synonym is
-o romount -w :
Mount the file system read/write. This is the default. A synonym is
-o rwmount -L label :
Mount the partition that has the specified label
mount -U uuid :
Mount the partition that has the specified
uuid 
.
mount -t vfstype
: The argument following the
-t
is used to indicate the file system type
