SuSE 9.1 on IDE, not seeing 4 SCSI drives.


I've new to all of this, and I'm looking for advice and recommendations. Simply enough, where do I start to get SuSE to recognize my 4 SCSI drives? This is what I've got so far:

tim@linux:/> cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: SEAGATE Model: ST318275LW Rev: 0001
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 01 Lun: 00
Vendor: SEAGATE Model: ST318275LW Rev: 0001
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi1 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: SEAGATE Model: ST318275LW Rev: 0001
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi1 Channel: 00 Id: 01 Lun: 00
Vendor: SEAGATE Model: ST318275LW Rev: 0001
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
tim@linux:/>


Of the 4 drives, 2 are FAT32 and 2 are NTFS. There is no data on the NTFS drives, I'm interested in accessing the 2 FAT32 drives. So... if these exist, how do I access them? When I open up my computer-devices I see the following:

Cd Recorder
Floppy
Hard Disc (hdb2) [/]
Hard Disc [/sys]

When I open up Hard Disc [/sys], i get the following error:

mount: only root can mount sysfs on /sys
Please check that the disk is entered correctly.

Thoughts?

Standard format,

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/c
mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt/d
mount -t ntfs /dev/sdc1 /mnt/e
mount -t ntfs /dev/sdd1 /mnt/e

I'm guessing what drives have those FS's and partitions. But that covers it. You cannot write to NTFS drives by default(without pirating libraries). You can only read. For fat32, you can read/write.

I just edited and noticed your reply. I wanted to add that I would like to access the existing data on the FAT32 drives.

my mistake, one drive is Linux (old FC3 install).
