joe works a lot like Emacs. Save is C-x C-s (ctrl-x, ctrl-s), exit is C-x C-c, Open/create new file is C-x C-f, etc.
mount is mount [-t type] <device> <mount point>, IIRC. The point to mounting is to tell the operating system that there is another disk in the system. A lot of this happens in the background in other operating systems (i.e., automatically mounted), but this is the UN*X way (seems bassackwards, but it allows the option of unmounting a drive and remounting it readonly, etc without rebooting). Mount point is where to mount the drive at (UN*X uses the philosophy that 'everything is a file' - thus, even disk devices appear in the filesystem, and their contents (after mounting) appear somewhere in the filesystem as well, usually a descendant of / (root). All files hang off of / in some way, so it gives the appearance that multiple disks look like one disk).
