Volume Management Provides Access to CDs

The arrangement for CDs is similar, except that the block and raw directories are labelled /dsk and /rdsk, respectively, and the CD-ROM device is actually located one directory beneath them.


In the illustration above, the additional directory is named c0t6. That simply reflects a particular system's device naming conventions. The directory name on your system could be different, though it would have the same format.

The CDs themselves, however, follow a convention similar to diskettes, in that they are mounted beneath the directory belonging to their device:


As a result of this arrangement, a system with one diskette drive and one CD-ROM drive would have the following /vol/dev file system:


(Actually, /vol/dev includes an additional subdirectory named aliases, but that is described later in this section.)
