knoppix mount point


Hey guys,

I am trying to use knoppix to recover a problem that is causing my Mandrake system not to boot. Currently, when I mount the harddrive, knoppix is defaulting to the home directory. Does anyone know how I can mount to the root directory?

Thanks!

Mike

what do you mean mount the harddrive?? you can't mount a hard drive, you mount a partition on that drive... are you not just picking the wrong partition to mount?

I guess that I am just not mounting the right partition. What partition is the root directory?

it depends how you installed your system now doesn't it? i had no control over how you installed you're system i'm afraid. use "fdisk -l" to view partition tables on all drives. see the "mount" manpage for details of its usage.
