I assume you're referring to something other than typing...
	mount -t cd9660 /dev/wcd0c /cdrom

such as just...
	mount /dev/wcd0c /cdrom

or are you actually typing...
	mount_cd9660 /dev/wcd0c /cdrom

Subject: Mount enhancement?


Is there anyone that has any thoughts on making mount a single step?

mount_msdos
mount_cd9960
mount_ntfs
mount_ext2fs

just

mount

Under another x86 Unix based OS they use just "mount" for all filesystem and
device mounting, and determine the filesystem type using "dtype" (data
type), so instead of using a separate mount command for every hardware
device or filesystem, it is just "mount."

(of course their are perhaps the odd exception)

To achieve this a intermediate step to determine the data-type would be
required then perhaps to call the appropriate mount command with the command
line parameters.

Has anyone got any thoughts?

Greg
