"I had connected a hard disk as secondary master in my machine which has fedora core 1. My bios shows the second drive. I want to copy some files from the secondary master (also has fedora) to the primary disk."

The secondary master is /dev/hdc. You need to know what partitions you have on /dev/hdc which you can find out with:
fdisk -l /dev/hdc

You also need to know the file system type of the partition that you want to copy. Assuming that you want to copyfiles from partition hdc1 and that it is an ext3 file system then the way to mount the partition is:
mkdir /wren
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdc1 /wren

Then you can copy files from the /wren file tree to your / file tree.

I'm having the same issue, however, when my system starts up, it seems to be mounting the drive from the get-go, and trying to read files from the second drive. Any suggestions?
