Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

From a console (cli) do a 'fdisk -l' to get the disk(s) information. You will find type 'bf' for 'Solaris' if there indeed is a Solaris partition. You would then be sure to have a mount point to mount the partition too. You can do this with 'mkdir /mnt/Your_solaris' command from the 'cli'.

Then to mount you could issue a 'mount /dev/your_Solaris /mnt/Your_Solaris' to mount the device filesystem on the mount point.

Just a few links to aid you;
