You'll have to enter the command in Konsole (Start < system < terminal < konsole). If you want te mount your partition , then you enter

mount /mnt/(name_of_partition)

Note: you must have root priviliges to mount. You can do this like this=
su (press enter)
then enter your password

Then mount, that's all there is to it

lol...funny seeing this post you must be really new....I answered your question in the other forum btw... as far as where to enter the code your obviously using the gui....look on the taskbar at the bottom or in the start menu...your looking for a progam called termial or xterm...somthing like that. once you open this you will have a command prompt window open where u can enter the code that i posted....and just because you seem relly new....when you enter the code dont put the # in...thats just to symbolize the prompt....ie---if u see code posted that is like this:

#mount /mnt/cdrom

you would type only this on the command line

mount /mnt/cdrom

and a mount is...well.....to use an analogy....picture youself as riding a horse, you "mount" the horse and have control of its resources....a mount point is just where the system will "mount" this particular resource to and then you will be able to use the resource.....

hope that makes some sense.

good luck to ya.
