mount_pcfs - mount pcfs file systems


     mount -F pcfs [generic_options] [-o FSType-specific_options]
     special | mount_point

     mount -F pcfs [generic_options] [-o FSType-specific_options]
     special mount_point


     mount attaches an  MS-DOS file system  (pcfs)  to  the  file
     system  hierarchy  at the mount_point, which is the pathname
     of a directory. If mount_point has any contents prior to the
     mount  operation,  these are hidden until the file system is

     If  mount is invoked with  special or   mount_point  as  the
     only  arguments,   mount will search  /etc/vfstab to fill in
     the    missing    arguments,    including    the     FSType-
     specific_options; see mount(1M) for more details.

     The  special argument can be one of two special device  file

        o  A   floppy   disk,   such   as    /dev/diskette0    or

        o  A DOS logical  drive  on  a  hard  disk  expressed  as
           device-name:logical-drive  ,  where device-name speci-
           fies the special block device-file for the whole  disk
           and  logical-drive is either a drive letter (c through
           z) or a drive number  (1  through  24).  Examples  are
           /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0:c and /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0:1.

     The  special device file type must have a  formatted  MS-DOS
     file  system  with  either  a 12-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit File
     Allocation Table.


           See  mount(1M) for the list of supported options.

     -o    Specify  pcfs file system specific options.  The  fol-
           lowing options are available:

           rw|ro Mount the file system read/write  or  read-only.
                 The default is  rw.

                 Force  uppercase  characters  in  filenames   to
                 lowercase when reading them from the filesystem.
                 This is  for  compatibility  with  the  previous
                 behavior of  pcfs. The default is  nofoldcase.

     If the directory on which a file system is to be mounted  is
     a symbolic link, the file system is mounted on the directory
     to which the symbolic link refers, rather than on top of the
     symbolic link itself.
