Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

Disk /dev/hdd: 30.0 GB, 30020272128 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3649 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdd1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hdd2 14 3649 29206170 8e Linux LVM
and tryed to mount using: mount /dev/hdd2 /mnt/sec_drv -t auto
It didn't work because i had to specify a filesystem type.
My question is:
What is the filesystem for that partition?? Or what am i doing wrong
Unless you really want a LVM partition on this HD, change the tpye of /dev/hdd2 to 83 (Linux). After that, create a filesystem on it and you ready to go.
# fdisk /dev/hdd (t, 2, 83, w are the keys to change the type of partition 2 to 83 and write the modifications).
i have an fedora core 4 on bolth hdd's, I belive it would help if you understood that when i instaled linux i let it make the partitions. So now i have a lot of info that i must extract from my second hdd. I can't boot form my second hdd(the one i am trying to mount) because linux was installed on a nother sistem.
ok here is the output of mount:
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 on / type ext3 (rw)
/dev/proc on /proc type proc (rw)
/dev/sys on /sys type sysfs (rw)
/dev/devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/hda11 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
/dev/shm on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)

automount(pid2017) on /misc type autofs (rw,fd=4,pgrp=2017,minproto=2,maxproto=4)
automount(pid2064) on /net type autofs (rw,fd=4,pgrp=2064,minproto=2,maxproto=4)
Sorry for the delay...
Hope you cna help me i really need the files on that partition.
