need mounting info


hello! I'm trying to get my memory refreshed on the mounting process. We have a Unix server with Oracle db. It's been 5 years since I worked with this type of environment, and the book I have really doesn't tell me anything at all about the mounting process. if I remember correctly, the mounting process basically just creates a link to a shared folder - is that correct? or does it do more than that? If so, what?

also, how do you mount a shared folder?

any help is very much appreciated!! thanks!

You could be looking for more than this, but:
Code:
> man mount

Hello,

The best information is obtained from your system itself since it contains the man pages that go with the version of your commands.

So just type at the console:
Code:
man mount
and take it from there.

It will show you among other info this:
Quote:
All files accessible in a Unix system are arranged in one big tree, the file hierarchy, rooted at /. These files can be spread out over several devices. The mount command serves to attach the file system found on some device to the big file tree. Conversely, the umount(8) command will detach it again.
Kind regards,

Eric
