Beginning with the Solaris 2.2 software, a new layer of software manages CD-ROM and diskette devices: Volume Management. This software automates the interaction between you and your CDs and diskettes.
CDE OpenWindows File Manager has been modified to use Volume Management to provide immediate user access to CDs and diskettes with file systems on them. See OpenWindows User's Guide for more information on File Manager's new features.
There are also several new commands to help you administer Volume Management on your system.
For more information, see "Using Volume Management".
