Help mounting a redhat 9.0 slave harddisk


I screwed up my redhat 9.0 system by installing the latest beta of redhat. I reloaded redhat 9.0 on a new drive, and installed the old drive as a slave, How do I mount the old redhat drive so I can copy some of my old data from it ?

Thanks
GBlue

Welcome to LQ.

To see the partitions you have on your fixed drives run:
fdisk -l

Then make a mountpoint eg:
mkdir /mnt/oldpartition

To mount the drive use:
mount /dev/hdb3 /mnt/oldpartition

Assuming the partition you want to mount is hdb3. Once you have got the data or you wnat to unmount the parition use:
umount /mnt/oldpartition

It looks like you have mounted your old boot partion. Unmount it then mount one of the other partitions. I only gave hdb3 as an example.

The default RH install creates three partitions, boot, root and swap. It looks like you have mounted the boot partition.

As suggested above fdisk -l /dev/hdb will display a list of partitions just for the slave drive. Replace hdb if different.
Mount the other partition which should be your root. If you have additional partitions then mount them and see whats there.
