I recently got a buddy of mine to install RedHat and so far so good except he asked me what entry in /dev/ is his window 2k partition and his win98 partition...
I couldn't give him an answer, I've always used either one drive or a GUI-based config app (like utillities that Mandrakes Control panel offer)
So not only am I trying to find an answer for my friend but for myself aswell.. I need to learn this! kinda scary I haven't
He has two CDroms
and two hdd's one with 3 partions and the other, 2
I've found (though i lost it already) a link to a page describing how the hdaX, hdcX, etc. etc. work but another questions in addition to thtat is, will the "hd" entries under /dev/ only be there when the drive is present? or are their files simply named "hdxx" by default which are null until a drive is plugged in?
wow... tired like always
hope that makes sense!
anyhelp would be great.
