3.7 /mnt : Mount point for temporarily mounted filesystems
This directory is provided so that the system administrator may
temporarily mount filesystems as needed. The content of this directory
is a local issue and should not affect the manner in which any program
We recommend against the use of this directory by installation programs,
and suggest that a suitable temporary directory not in use by the system
should be used instead.
