I am pretty much a complete linux newbie, so please excuse any really stupid things I may say...
I am currently trying to mount my 120GB IBM/Hitachi HDD which I recently purchased to replace my full 80GB one. I have had no luck in trying to get it to mount. To the best of my knowledge this should be working... It did with my old disk. It is a fat32 partition, and only has one partition on it.
Logged in as root I write:
mount /dev/hdb1/ /mnt/files/
This outputs the following:
mount: special device /dev/hdb1/ does not exist
(a path prefix is not a directory)
The same happens when I try it with -t vfat
included. I know it is not the wrong number, as I have checked with hdb0(which I am pretty sure does not and should not exist) and hdb2 (which is exactly the same output as hdb1). I am running RedHat9.0.
If you need any other information leave a message, and preferably instructions of how to find out (like I said I am really very new to linux).
