3.6 The GNUIT mount utility

gitmount is a script that allows you to mount a list of block devices (specified in the command line), without specifying the file system type. With a command like `gitmount fd0 cdrom' the first floppy will be mounted in ‘/mnt/fd0’ and the cdrom will be mounted in ‘/mnt/cdrom’. Make sure your ‘/etc/fstab’ settings are correct.

You don't need to know the file system type anymore. If you want to use gitmount with the block device ‘/dev/xxx’ then the directory ‘/mnt/xxx’ is created if it doesn't exist. gitmount will attempt to create the necessary directories, but root permissions might be required.
