fedora 11 do not auto mount some of fat32 partitions in my hard drive.


Dear All

I have install Fedora 11 in my Intel pentium IV System as workstation, which has 80 GB Hard drive, the partitions sizes are

C = 20 GB Primary (used for linux O/S)
/ 5 GB root
2 GB swap
12 GB home


D = 60 GB Extended
e = 20 GB logical fat32
f = 20 GB logical fat32
g = 10 GB logical fat32
h = 10 GB logical fat32

after the successful installation, when you access the the icon "Computer" in its desktop, its only shows filesystem partition which is the C partition used for linux, and last two partitions which are 10 GB's,

My question is that why the other two 20 GB partitions are not auto mount.

In Application drop down menu, there is a system tools sub drop down menu has "palimpsest disk utility" it shows all partitions, also the 20 GB partitons are shown here but it shown that "20 GB Unrecognized"
what it mean ? kindly tell me.
also
Kindly tell me why it is happening, and how to resolve it that other two partitions can be auto mount on system startup, and commands for showing disk space for Terminal command window, what the difference between "df" and "free" commands.

Thanks in advanced,

waiting for your response.

Akram.

Dear smeezekitty,

I said that I have 20 GB primary and 60 GB extended partitions,
and the logical partitions are always included in extended space. so it is exact 80 GB, not more that 80 GB.

Thanks,

Akram.

df shows disk statsistics and free shows memory free
what is the output of df?
