Exercise 1 - Configure User Mountable Removable Filesystems

The Linux filesystem uses the root as the base of a 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.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Log into a Linux System
  • Manually mount and unmount filesystems
  • Configure filesystem mounting on bootup
  • Configure user mountable removable filesystems
