    77As most POSIX compliant operating systems,  ALMOS-MKH sees the external storage device as an array of clusters, where each clusters can store one page of 4 Kbytes. Each cluster occupies eight  512 bytes physical sectors, and is indexed by a cluster identifier, calledd ''cluster_id''.

    1211All supported fille systems are supposed to have a hierarchical tree_based structure, where some special ''directory'' files contain ''links''  to other files that can be ''directory'' files, or ''terminal'' files. Therefore, any file X in the file system can be unambiguously defined by a ''pathname'' describing the path from the VFS root to the X file. A ''directory'' file has only on single path name, but a ''terminal'' file can have several ''parent'' directories, defining several path names for one single file.
