mounting extended vfat filesystems
I started using linux 2 days ago (i love it!), and as such I am still very much a newbie. (I have >8 yrs. experience in the windoze world)
I have two hard disks, the first has 3 fat32 partitions (1 primary, 2 extended) and has Win2k Pro on it. the second has rh linux 7.2 enigma (1 ext2 partition and and a linux swap).
Now, once i've booted into linux, I can mount the first (primary) partition of the vfat hardisk but not the other two. the command line i'm using it:
mount -t vfat /dev/hda2 /mnt/datadir
mount -t vfat /dev/hda3 /mnt/datadir
neither of these commands work. Is there something extra I need to add for extended partitions? Is there a bug regarding this in the 2.4.x kernel (which i have read is very buggy)? Am I doing something else wrong?
