Debian problem


I have installed debian, thanks to the help of some guys here

but I have this problem, I have 2 HD's one 80gb fat32 with win xp and the other the linux 80gb with debian,

when I boot into linux and try to see the 80gb xp drive I get this error message........

libhal-storage.c 1401 : info: called libhal_free_dbus_error but dbuserror was not set.

process 4860: applications must not close shared connections - see dbus_connection_close() docs. this is a bug in the application.

error: device /dev/hda1 is not removable

error: could not execute pmount

Can someone help please,,,,

How are you "trying to see" the XP drive?

I am using the administration, from desktop, and then disks using the root PW but thats the odd thing,,, sometimes when I do this it auto mounts the xp drive and other times I get the error drive as shown in my first post, and as a new user of linux I am a little confused

OK, you are using the GUI ... "drives" displayed as icons may not be mounted. Check what is going on by looking for them with the commandline.

examine the drives and partitions present:

fdisk -l

...are they all there? (Next, assuming XP was in /dev/sda1)

sudo mkdir /mnt/XP
sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/XP
ls /mnt/XP

... if this goes off fine, you can edit /etc/fstab (note, you may already have mountpoint as /media/sda1 or somesuch, use this instead is OK.)

suda gedit /etc/fstab

... to add the appropriate line for your drive.
