Can Linux only see the boot partition of other Linux installations?
I have two hard drives, each with Fedora 12 installed. I messed up the first installation by uninstalling some packages that were apparently important, and now I'm running the second installation.
When I plug the first drive in to get the files back, it appears as a '210mb filesystem' and I can only see system files.
This has happened twice, so it seems unlikely that each drive has broken in the time it takes to install Fedora and plug it back in.
I have logged in as root, in case it was a security issue, but I still can't see the main partition. Is there any way I can get my files back?
Any advice would be appreciated.
