I have a lot of data, mainly mp3's on a hard drive using a dos compatible format. I'm running RedHat 9 kernel build 2.4.20-31.9 on my primary drive which is fully formatted for linux. Is there any way to access the data on that drive in linux?
Distribution: Slackware, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X
Is it fat32, or ntfs? In that order.
mount -t vfat /dev/hdx /mnt/mountpoint
mount -t ntfs /dev/hdx /mnt/mountpoint
Where /dev/hdx is the partition recognized by your system, and /mnt/mountpoint is an empty directory. Keep in mind if the file system is ntfs, write access is still experimental afaik. There are some write solutions for ntfs, I've never used them so I cannot vouch for them.
