Storage stack

The AniNIX uses the following storage stack, from user-accessed files to bits on disk. Bootability is from an unencrypted [ EXT4 boot sector] and MBR [ GRUB] bootloader.

The output of "lsblk -o NAME,KNAME,SIZE,FSTYPE,TYPE,MOUNTPOINT,LABEL,PARTLABEL" gives the following layout. Additional shares mounted to accomodate users are not shown.
