How do I manually mount a FAT32 external drive in Kubuntu 7.0.0?
 
Hello,
I finally managed to get a Seagate Free Agent 500GB drive reformatted to FAT32 with GPart but now that I've done that Konqueror isn't able to mount it. I intend to copy my (single partition!) Home folder to it and then repartition my internal drive. It mounted automatically before I reformatted it, but of course I couldn't move any files to it. I'm a very inexperienced user and afraid I don't know the basics yet. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks,
higleyg
