/dev, /proc, /sys and I *think* /selinux are virtual filesystems --
their contents don't appear on disk. They're either generated on

(they're for you to fill as appropriate). /boot and /home may well be
mount-points for other filesystems (and /mnt is) -- so if you mount
root filesystem from another OS, they will be empty.
And /net doesn't exist by default -- if you want it, you create it.
