Mounting File Systems

File systems can be mounted automatically when the system is booted, on demand from the command line, or through the automounter. The automounter provides many advantages over mounting at boot time or from the command line. However, many situations require a combination of all three methods. Additionally, several ways of enabling or disabling processes exist, depending on the options you use when mounting a file system.
