Whether you are using a disk partition, or a logical volume to store your data, you will need to put a file system on top of it before you can put it to use. In this hands-on lab, we will create, mount, unmount, and use vfat, ext4, and xfs file systems. In addition, we will mount, and unmount network file systems using NFS.
