Modifying filesystem mount configuration
select a filesystem from the list,
select Modify Mount Configuration
from the Mount menu, then
change the filesystem parameters:
specifies the directory where you want to attach (``mount'')
For example, the u filesystem is generally mounted
on the /u directory.
specifies the (optional) description of the filesystem.
For example, the default description for the root filesystem
is ``The root filesystem''.
specifies the type of filesystem.
``Supported filesystem types''.
The filesystem type is set when the filesystem is created
and cannot be changed.
mounts the filesystem as read-only so that no changes can be made
to the filesystem while it is mounted.
You must mount CD-ROM filesystems and filesystems
on write-protected floppy disks as read-only to prevent errors.
mounts the filesystem with write permissions enabled.
Changes can be made to the filesystem while it is mounted.
When mounting remote filesystems, read/write permissions
might already be limited by the NFS server.
For more information, see
``Setting export access permissions''.
Can Users Mount
specifies that regular users can mount and unmount the filesystem.
Unless you select this option, only root can mount
and unmount the filesystem.
``Enabling users to mount filesystems''.
When to Mount
mounts the filesystem immediately;
the filesystem remains mounted until you unmount it
or you reboot the system.
At System Startup
does not mount the filesystem immediately.
The next time you boot the system,
the filesystem is mounted automatically.
Check and Repair Options
changes the filesystem checking mount options.
``Check and repair options''.
These options are not available for CD-ROM filesystems
(High Sierra, ISO9660, Rockridge), NFS-mounted filesystems,
or DOS filesystems;
you cannot check and repair these filesystem types with the
Filesystem Manager or
changes the filesystem-specific advanced options.
Which advanced options are available depends on the type of filesystem
you are modifying
(these options are not available for
XENIX filesystems). See:
