After trying this I still get the message:

mount: procfs : Operation not supported

And a

mount -t procfs /proc/

does the following:

usage: mount [-adflpruvw] [-F fstab] [-o options] [-t ufs | external_type]
        mount [-dfpruvw] special | node
        mount [-dfpruvw] [-o options] [-t ufs | external_type] special node

So, what is wrong with me :-(?
