MOUNT_FFS(8)                System Manager's Manual               MOUNT_FFS(8)

     mount_ffs, mount_ufs - mount a Berkeley Fast File System

     mount_ffs [-o options] special node

     The mount_ffs command attaches the Berkeley Fast File System on the
     special device on to the file system tree at point node.  Both special
     and node are converted to absolute paths before use.

     The mount_ufs form of the command is meant for backward compatibility
     only.  Fast File Systems should no longer be listed as type "ufs" in
     fstab(5) and instead should be listed as type "ffs".

     This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time.  The options
     are as follows:

     -o      Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma
             separated string of options.  See the mount(8) man page for
             possible options and their meanings.

     mount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8)

     A mount_ffs command appeared in NetBSD 1.1.

     It is possible for a corrupted file system to cause a crash.
