I am running Colinux, that uses a file default.config.xml to load devices and network stuff at startup.

I am running Topologilinux on Colinux in a window on win2k.

I can run Toplogilinux (Real-mode) from bootmenu or win2k.

After I type "HALT" in TLINUX "Real-mode" (not in Colinux) its says "flushing IDE devices hda hdb hdc "

So how do i mount and access them ?? i dont know the command plz help somebody

if u already inside real linux use root eg

[rou@net ~]$ su -
Password:
[root@net ~]# /sbin/fdisk -l

the result will show u all the drive and file system

eg,

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 * 1 1106 8883913+ 83 Linux

so there u know sdb1 is linux system or whaver it state there

so the way to mount is the following

mkdir /mnt/sdb-mount
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb-mount

==explain here = my drive is scsi so name is sd* so what is ur disk follow it from /sbin/fdisk -l
mkdir /mnt/sdb-mount <-- this is to create directory where u want to mount it
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb-mount <- this is the function to mount to the target folder

so after that too see is there mounted or not proceed command

df -h

good luck
