I appologise for the bad use of the forum, This is the first time I have posted into a forum. In the past I was using the windoze OS, and using it wasn't a problem, however product activation got the better of me and now windows is missing a few vital dll's.
Now, i have hdd's on my desktop, time to use WINE!!!

Not bad use of the forum at all. Don't take a suggestion as a slap on the wrist. It was not intended that way.

Here is a follow up topic,
Now that we've established linux seeing a fat32 partition, how do I get linux to remember seeing it after a reboot?
currently I have 9 fat32 partitons.
hda1,2
sdb1,2,3*,4,5,6,7
(hdb1 still not showing fat32 partition table in linux)

See the second post in this thread (by tuxrules). Specifically, where it's talking about "/etc/fstab". You need to add a line to that file. There's an example in tuxrules' earlier post. Also, run "man fstab" to learn more about your /etc/fstab file.

thanks

thanks for your help everybody. I was able to mount it manually but have not tried to edit the fstab file yet. I am also having problems connecting to my wireless network (which does not have an afforadble solution yet). I had to set up a dummy computer with WinXP and connect to the network via CAT5 cable from Linux machine to Win machine. It will work for the next 29 days (stupid windows needs activation.)
