Two little reminders


Matthew Dillon has two comments on some small things that are absolutely essential: how to reach the CDROM and how to really back up existing partitions before installing DragonFly.

  1. Lazarus says:

    “mount -t cd9660 /dev/cd0c /mnt/cdrom
    (or /dev/cd0a, I forget which).”

    Not that it’s important, but I’ve always just done the following with ATAPI drives:

    mount_cd9660 /dev/cd0c /mnt/

    You can use tab completion this way ;^)

  2. I’ve always created subdirectories off of /mnt because I ended up mounting multiple things there – optical media, loopback images, and windows shares, for instance.

    Same with most folks I know (I’m too lazy/rarely mount more than one thing at a time). I was more refering to the fact that using mount_cd9660 instead of mount -t cd9660 lets you save some typing 8-)
