Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-12-27
im using solaris 8 x86.

1-i cannot find any tutorial on mounting cdrom or usb drive for solaris8. do any friends here know how to do it? by the way i already create directory in /mnt/ which is /mnt/cdrom and /mnt/usb

like in linux...i can use fdisk -l to find any new hardware ( usb drive )...then mount it by mount /dev/sdb1   /mnt/usb

Watch Question

Mount a Cdrom
mount -F pcfs /dev/dsk/c0d0p0 /mnt/cdrom

If cod0p0 is not your cdom then replace with correct. I think cfgadm -al will show it (not sure on x86) though

Here is a link on x86. Look for the section Using USB devices. It explains it all.
