kubuntu mount partition


I'm retreating from Windows XP. I have two drives. One 160 GB hard drive partitioned into 100 for Windows and 60 for kubuntu (IDE Master). The other (IDE slave) drive is the one I'm interested in mounting. It is a completely separate volume. I can't seem to determine WHAT I'm trying to mount though. IE, am I trying to mount hda2, hda3, hda5? hda1 mounted the Windows partition of the master drive.

Do mesg | grep hd which will tell which(drive) is master/slave secondary ..whatever. And then fdisk -l the_drives_discovered. That should tell you the partition names. Hope that helps.

Ok, I've done that. I have discovered that the drive is "hdb", so...
Quote:
justin@kubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/hdb /media/DStore/ -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222
Password:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

In general, the IDE slave drive is hdb. So if you made it all one partition, you would mount hdb1. Now if it were an external USB drive or a SATA drive, I think it's usually sdb or something like that...

Baggen's post should give you an output of something like:

NTFS FS on /dev/hda1
EXT3 FS on /dev/hda2
EXT3 FS on /dev/hdb1
etc,

Then type fdisk -l /dev/hdb1 or such for the drive without NTFS on it.
