could you post a little bit more about your system

is it a live cd or usb install or hard drive install?

what is the name of your distro?

what environment or windowmanager are you using?

2) leaping ahead...assuming its a working filesystem in a distro .....you need root powers to amend the filesystem at that level or folder area.....but you can use your normal powers to create the folder in your
/home/yourname/area

3) once you have understood that....there is no need to have something under /mnt if you must have something with root powers you can create it anywhere.

let us know if you have understood any of my questions or advice??

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

You cannot create a new directory in the '/' unless you have 'root privileges'.

In your '/home/your_directory' you can create any directory with privileges as you desire.

You should read the next two posts;
