/dev/hdb vanished when I changed configurations, and I changed the fstab to suit the new config. ...but when I use drakconf (Mandrake Control Center), it wants the CDROM to go in /dev/hdb (which don't exist anymore). Having the CDROM in the CD drive (/dev/hdc now) does nothing. I'm still working on the fstab to get it mountable. I've done some playing with my fstab on my "big machine" because I was trying to get to some old filesystems from my reloading process I just went through. Now I have them all in various points in /mnt on my big box, but that's a story for another time.
