where is hda1?


I'm something of a newbie when it comes to linux so please excuse me if this is a dumb question.

I just booted puppy 2.16 from cd with the hope of using it to repair a hosed win2k installation. I understand that puppy has some ntfs write capability so I figured it'd be useful for replacing some corrupt files, but I can't even seem to access the windows partition. The hda2 partition is there but no hda1 and I am therefore confused


Any help greatfully received...

If you open a terminal window and enter the fdisk -l command you can see if Linux detects the partition.
Code:
fdisk -l
Then you can enter the mount command with no parameters to see if Linux has already mounted the partition.
Code:
mount
The driver with NTFS write capability is called ntfs-3g. I don't know about Puppy Linux but I have found with other distros that you have to specifically use that utility in a terminal window to get it to work.
Code:
ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows_c
I use the System Recue CD distribution of Linux to repair Windows machines. It's great. It's got lots of tools like partimage, parted, ntfs-3g, and others for recovering data from Windows file systems.

If you click on the "Drives" icon on the desktop, it should show it there. Click on it to mount it. Puppy will use the nfts-3g driver unless the partition was not shutdown cleanly (eg hibernated) then it uses the default read only driver.
