I don't think I used any acronyms, what looks like one
(mkdir,mount,umount,rmdir,ls) is probably the name of the utility I ran.
The 'westernsteer' was simply a throwaway name for purposes of the demo. In
the mount command, I used the -t option to specify the type of filesystem to
mount as linux has about a dozen variations, with 'ext3' which is ext2 with
journaling as the default used by 95+% of the users.
