Is there a way to mount a drive in a folder with OSX, for example have volume "Datadrive" appear under the documents folder.  I've done this under linux but not certain of the correct syntax for OSX?

diskutil mount -mountPoint <where you want to mount the drive to> <device name>
diskutil mount -mountPoint /foldername /dev/disk1s1

I tried that and receive the message Volume Capsule on /Volumes/Capsule mounted.  But it does not show up in correct folder

I wanted to mount my external usb drive (called Capsule) in a folder called Drives on my internal HD called Lion

So I did diskutil mount -mountPoint /Lion/Drives /dev/disk2s2

Am I missing something?
