mounting partitions


yeah im doing a lot of posts these days, im sorry.

i have (again) a question. when i first installed mandrake, i had two partition on my hard drive and he detected them automatically. now i formatted it (because one was in ntfs) and i have two new fat32 partitions. the problem is that there are only my old partitions mounted, and i cant do anything. how can i mount my new partitions? i have three of them. i heart about some automount or i dont know, but well yeah.

thanks

oh its clearer

but i still cant manage to do it. i know i have 2 partitions of 30go, one of 6go with winshit xp on it, one for my / and one for my /home. but when i go in fstab, all i have is this :

/dev/hda3 / ext3 errors=remount-ro,defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda5 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda1 /media/win_c ntfs umask=000,nls=iso8859-15,ro 0 0
/dev/hda2 /media/win_d vfat umask=000,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850 0 0
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-15,sync,codepage=850 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0

win_c and win_d are my old partitions which are formated. if i cant even see my new ones, how can i mount them?

where are the partitions located on your drive? say, for example, it was the first partition on the first drive, you'd type 'mount /dev/hda1 /whatever'. make sure that the directory is already created on your system, though.. if you want to automatically mount the partition upon booting, then add the appropriate entry in your 'etc/fstab'. see this for understanding the syntax..

hope this helps!
