Exercise 1 -Configure User Mountable Removable Filesystems

The Linux filesystem uses the root as the base of the filesystem. Along with root, you can have different filesystems on different devices and partitions. When you boot a Linux system, the root (/) filesystem is mounted as part of the initialization process. However, the remaining filesystems are not usable until they are mounted at a specific mount point.

In this exercise, you will understand how to configure user mountable removable filesystems.
