How to mount a SCSI hard drive through a PCI SCSI card.


I have an OLD OLD OLD hard drive from like 1994 that came out of a UNIX server at an automotive repair shop. My friend wants me to get all of the customer info out of it and move it over to Windows so he can access it in an easier to navigate environment(for him).

I did some research and know that the hardrive uses either an EXT or EXT 2 filesystem. The hard drive is a Seagate 2.2 GB SCSI drive with jumpers on the top of it.

I have a SCSI PCI card that allows me to put a SCSI HD in my nonSCSI system.

My first question is: Will Fedora 5 will recognize the filesystem?

I am pretty sure it will but you guys know more than I.

Secondly, will the SCSI card work in Fedora 5?

And lastly, how do I mount the harddrive provided the rest of what I have said works?

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.

It should recognize the formet fine.

The card is hard to say since not mention model and brand. You might get some info on it from the HCL database here located at the top or to the right.

If the pci card has the correct module loaded for it, then use the command ' /sbin/fdisk -l ' as root ' su ' of course. It should display the partition table if it is seen. If no other SCSI, USB, or Firewire media drives are attached it be /dev/sda* device block.

Example of mine.
Code:
[root@lcomp18 crusher18]# /sbin/fdisk -l
