Okay, I'm going to try to say this as nicely as possible- I have no clue how you could believe this was even remotely legible English. I have at present, out of a sense of morbid curiousity, spent several minutes trying to read it.

If you want help, you need to communicate your problem. To do that, we need to be able to understand what you are writing. That said, I think I know what you are asking, and I will try to help. But please, take a little bit more time in the future.

First off, I use FAT32 on my WinXP portion (I dual-boot WinXP and Debian). I think you seem worried you'll be judged for that. Anyone who would do that needs a hobby.

It appears that you have two physical drives. The first contains Windows and Linux, the second is just for data.

If that is correct, then your first hard drive is most likely called hda in Linux. You can go to a console and type df -h. That will show you which drives are mounted, and how much free space they have.

Your second physical hard drive would be referred to as hdb. To mount it, you could, for example, issue the command mount /dev/hdb1 This would mount the second harddrive to your system, which I believe is what your question was regarding.

Good luck!

[root@localhost ziggis]# mount /dev/hdb1
mount: can't find /dev/hdb1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
[root@localhost ziggis]#
