mounting a daisy chained firewire drive
I have 2 external USB2/firewire drives. Each drive has 2 firewire connections on it, I assume for daisy chaining. My computer has only one firewire connection on it.
When I mount either drive individually they both respond fine to
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbhd
What I want to do is to daisy chain these 2 drives together and mount them both. I plugged one in, mounted it as normal, daisy chained the 2nd one then tried:
# mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/usbhd2
# mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usbhd2
and neither worked, error was sda2 or sdb1 "was not a block blah-blah device" (sorry, I'm away from that machine right now and can't recall the exact error).
