Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I could have sworn I told the installer to mount md126 as /www, and md127 as /repos, but this turns out to not have been the case.
It created the /repos and /www folders, but apparently didn't link them to the raid partitions. I found this out when I filled up /. Oopsie.
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root 50395844 5814504 42021340 13% /
/dev/sdb1 50395844 36636116 11199728 77% /scratch
tmpfs 3958980 0 3958980 0% /dev/shm
So that's not what I had in mind... (In case you're curious, I had filled up /, but mved it to /scratch.)
I ran fdisk -l, and it listed the partitions, but I noticed that both md127 and md126
"Disk /dev/md126 doesn't contain a valid partition table"
So my question:
How do I mount /dev/md127 so that when I write a file to /repos, it is stored on that raid partition, rather than the / partition? If it helps, I'm mostly interacting with /repos using sftp and git.

Reason: added cat /etc/fstab.
