okay, first of all you need to check , which partitions you want to copy to /from...
you should be able to find that out using fdisk.... (DONT MODIFY ANY THING) just use it to view the aviable partitions....
(BY the way, if they are linux partions, most probably they were already detected and mounted some place ...most probably under
/dev/hd([a][b]......). again it depends on where that partition actually is
/dev/hda1 or /dev/hdb3 etc
CHECK the /mnt directory.. it is was already detected it should be mounted there.... if not , you would have to mount it using the mount command..
mount -t ext3 /dev/hd(some letter follwed by a number ) /mnt/(what ever name you want to use)
plz make sure you create the directory first.
once it is mounted , use the
cp command to copy stuff..
check man cp or info cp
DO THIS FIRST
launch the XServer (type startx on the console), and run disk manager. most probably you can see the partitions there. simpy drag and drop the files the way it works in the windows...
alternativly, browse to /mnt directory and see if it already contains the directory idicating the partiitions... if you cant c that, try using the above mentioned procedure........
