Question


Hello hello.. Im need to find out a way to mount my windows hardrive.. I got two hardrives and linux is at the second one of them the primary slave, hdb1, I thought that my old windows HD, hda1(?), would show up in /dev/ but it dosn't so there is no way to mount it.. I tried write /dev/MAKEDEV generic but all it said was that it dont know how to make usb/mouse.. the hda1 didn't show up..

I have no clue on how to do this.. Im running red hat 7.1..

execute this (w/o 1st/last quote & watch the spaces) in an xterm, or on the cmdline and itll show u all the vfat partitions uve got: "cat /proc/partitions | grep hd.. | gawk '{print $4,$1}' | grep " 3""
If it doesnt show any sign of a hda# that would definately be weird.
