Phase 1: Find out which filesystems you can use:

cat /proc/filesystems

Phase 2: If you need some more FSs, look in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/, then 
find a directory called either "fs" or "drivers", and "modprobe <name>" 
to load a module so you can use the filesystem that it implements. Repeat 
phase 1 if you wish.

Phase 3: mount -t <fstype as seen in phase 1> <device> <mount point>.

Phase 4: profit!
