Unhappy problems.. HEEELP..


Hi! I'm bored of Windows and installed RedHat Linux 9.0 2.4.20 -8

and i don't know anything about Linux so i need your help.

1-)I couldn't install my modem. Modem is Creative ModemBlaster. I don't know which file to download and what to do. I'd be happy if you tell me step by step

2-)I can't see my other partition of my HDD. What's the problem?

That's all for now. Thanks for your help.

Modems are a little tricky, butthe other partition shouldn't be a problem. Become root by typing 'su'. You will then be prompted for the root password. Enter it. Then list out the partitions like this

# fdisk -l

Create a directory to mount the partition to.

# mkdir /mnt/fat

Then mount whichever one of the partitions showed up like this (if it is an FAT filesystem)

# mount -t msdos /dev/hdax /mnt/fat

Good luck,
Andrew
