Thumbs up mount


Hi,

can anybody say the command to mount a ussb and cd rom and also how to unmount them with a very small explaination. Pls don't say
man mount.
I want your knowledge because its easier to understand than man and websites.

You can use
Quote:
/sbin/fdisk -l
to list your available devices (not necessarily the mounted ones). Based on their disk sizes, file system types, etc you should be able to figure which one is the USB and the cdrom.

Mounting is done with
Quote:
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt
where in this example 'ntfs' is the assumed file system of the device, '/dev/sda1' is the device listed by fdisk previously and '/mnt' is a directory where the device will be mounted - of course all parameters have to be changed for your system.

Unmounting for this example is
Quote:
umount /mnt
You should get some recent mainstream distro (maybe Fedora, Ubuntu, etc), because these are able to automatically mount attached devices like USB-sticks.
