2nd hard drive
here's a dumb one...
How do i access, write to and switch over to the 2nd physical disk in my linux RH 7.1 box!!!!???? thanks to the book I am reading, beginners guide to admin linux, it has taken me through fdisk, mke2fs, and types of partitions but it forgot to explian one major thing.... how do i access it?!! i am logged in as root on the root partition / but what if i want to create a directory on the 2nd disk, and how do i name it? it is only known as, at this point to be /dev/hdb1 or 2 etc...
ie: Say i wanted to create a partition or directory called /test1 on this disk? all the space has been allocated to it but it still after running mke2fs it is still sitting there as /dev/hdb1? Have i missed something?
although i have to admit, this is more fun than everything going smoothly.
