The command is
Code: Select all
mount -t type device dir

eg. If I had an ext4 partition /dev/sda2, and I wanted to mount it to /media/sda2 for access purposes, I'd run something like
Code: Select all
sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sda2 /media/sda2

If you want an in-depth explanation, open a terminal and run
Code: Select all
mount -h

Code: Select all
man 8 mount
