unable to mount windows harddrive
I am using redhat 9 and it is working correctly. I have my old harddrive which has windows 98se on it. I have installed this harddrive to the second plug on the ide cable and set the jumper pins to 'slave.' I have tested the harddrive to make sure it works by disconnecting the other one and setting the jumper to master, it boots windows fine.
I want this windows harddrive to be accessible by redhat9. During bootup I see 'initializing hda' then 'initializing hdb', so redhat9 must be seeing this second harddrive.
/sbin/fdisk -l lists only hda1 hda2 and hda3
/sbin/fdisk /dev/hdb says 'unable to open /dev/hdb'
mount -t vfat /dev/hdb /win98 says 'not a valid block device' and the same goes for dozens of variations and options of this command I've tried
Please help me with what steps it takes to get this windows harddrive accessible.
Thanks a lot,
