Post centOS IDE Installation


I recently upgraded from Mepis to centOS 4.

Before I started the installation I moved all of my files to an 80GB Maxtor drive.

I then installed centOS on the 40GB drive that previously held Mepis.

I have reconnected my 80GB drive and it shows up in the Harware Browser with both partitions still instact. how would I mount it without blowing away the original data? The drive was previously formatted as EXT3

Thanks

Provide the link - it's more polite and compassionate to other newbies who hit on this thread and now have to hit the back button but chafe at it, lazey sods

OK - I know you don't get to post urls yet - but you're safe if it's inside LQ - it just won't be a hyperlink, that's all.

Now lets see ... I'd better take my own advise ...

(What follows is for anyone following.)

If dmesg sees the extra drive as hdb, you can mount its partitions with:

mount -t ext3 /dev/hdb1 /mnt/drive

to mount the first partition ... the mountpoint "/mnt/drive" will need to be created, or you can use one that's already there like /mnt/floppy.

then

cd /mnt/drive and you're in!

Thanks ... you're a brick!

It's all a matter of learning to be part of a community

Generally, once you've posted a question, you've created a kind of trap for anyone following you. You know how it gets irritating to follow blind links? Therefore it's good manners not to create them...

There is definately a detox process from window$ isn't there? It's a kind of subliminal ache.
