Hello. I have /v automounted:

My auto.master file:
/v /etc/auto.vol

My auto.vol file:

FILE /phd/HELLO

When I go into the /v directory to create the FILE directory:

"mkdir /v/FILE"

I get

"mkdir: cannot create device FILE: No such file or directory"

Why can't I make a directory in the /v??

/v is owned by root and I am trying to make the directory as root.

Thanks!
