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

NAME
     mount_ffs, mount_ufs -- mount a Berkeley Fast File System

SYNOPSIS
     mount_ffs [-o options] special node

DESCRIPTION
     The mount_ffs command attaches the Berkeley Fast File System on the
     special device on to the file system tree at point node.

     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 sepa-
             rated string of options.  See the mount(8) man page for possible
             options and their meanings.

HISTORY
     A mount_ffs command appeared in NetBSD 1.1.
