Mounting Virtual Kernel File Systems - Help Pls

hi all, not new to linux but at the same time am not master of the internals :-( finding it very difficult in knowing certain things............until chapter-5 i was able to interpret things carefully and understand them,but in chapter-6 am finding it difficult to understand some concepts which i thnk i should know them......

i will start first with Mounting Virtual Kernel File Systems , what do these steps intend to do and why are these needed.........

[root@NEO ~]# mount -f -t ramfs ramfs $LFS/dev
[root@NEO ~]# mount -f -t tmpfs tmpfs $LFS/dev/shm
[root@NEO ~]# mount -f -t devpts -o gid=4,mode=620 devpts $LFS/dev/pts

i would be happy if friends could help me out in understanding things........

thanks in advance......

with reagards,
