/dev/rp00 and /dev/rp01 are named after the DEC RP06 disc drive attached to the system. We cannot make a link to a file in another subsystem. One reason is that the inode numbers are not unique in different file systems.
$ mesg n
$ mesg y
The ‘df’ command tells the available space in the mounted file subsystem. The ‘tty’ command tells which terminal we are using. So we can send files and informations to that terminal and it appears in the corresponding terminal. ‘mesg n’ turn off the messages. /dev/tty is a synonym for our terminal.
If we want to run a program and its output files are not importent we can redirect it to ‘/dev/null’ causes its output to be thrown away.
