How to Mount filesystem - read/write

Tech Blog - Here is a quick howto on mounting filesystem in Linux

To mount
# mount /dev/hda2 /mnt

/dev/hda2 is the disk/partition you want to mount, /mnt is where you want it mounted.

If you want to remount an already mounted drive as read only

# mount -oremount,ro /mnt

If you want to remount an already mounted drive as read write
# mount -remount,rw /mnt
