Dear Ambarish,

the word mounting refers to the process of getting a sepcific device into the filesystem structure. Coming from the windows world you can imagine it as follows:

- You have a hard disk drive in the server but you cannot see it in the "explorer"

- You are quite sure, that this hard disk drive is available in the server and it contains data

- Via mounting you make it available for usage in the server, which actually means you mount the hard disk drive to a directory

- Now the content of this HDD is available to you

Hot to do this? Very easy:

The HDD is /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0 (this is Sun Solaris style, I'm not familiar with HPUX) and you wanna mount it to a directory under root: /directory. Now u execute mount:

1. mount -F ufs /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0 /directory (syntax may change due to filesystems etc.)

2. cd /directory

3. ls -l ./


Now the content of the disk is available. That is all about mounting
