Here's a challenge for you Linuxers!
I am trying to create a file system within a file system.
Specifically, let's say I have a minix file system image called /fsimage.
Now I want to mount that file system image.
I tried the following:
mount -t minix /fsimage /mnt
to mount the filesystem /fsimage at my mounting point /mnt.
Needless to say, this failed with an error message.
mount: /fsimage is not a block device
Any ideas on how I can do this? I tried following the example of
creating a swap _file_, but it just didn't work. The command "swapon"
accepts a file name as an argument, so why doesn't mount?
BTW, assume the file /fsimage is larger than any floppy I have, so I can't
copy it to a floppy and mount it from there.
Thanks for your help!
