I know there is probably a simple solution, but I cant find it, so help me if you can.
I am running redhat8.0 (on /dev/hda ~80GB)
I have a firewire hdd. When I plug it in, and run fdisk -l it tells me that there is a /dev/sda --> sweet.
I then use fdisk to create a partition for my firewire drive whole drive - new partition, extended (or primary), max size and then I write these commands to the disk -->
rerun fdisk -l and yep, there is /dev/sda1 partition ~80GB in size.
Now, when I try to mount it - i am getting wrong fs type
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/FIRE
i know FIRE exists.
what is the type of fs I am trying to mount (i know fat32 is vfat - what is linux (82)) for the -t switch to work?
should i create this as an extended or primary partition - i just want it for file storage.
