Shalom,

Normally you give it a file system with newfs and then mount -t ext3

The contents on the mount command depend on the type of file system if any you are using.

Hi,
>>What is the best way to mount a lun on suse and rhel

You can't directly mount a lun on any unix
1st you need to create a file system they you can mount.

mount -t type device mount-point

mount -t ext3 /dev/hda2 /mnt

To mount a floppy disk
mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt

To mount a CDROM
mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/cdrom /mnt
