This is something I can not find info on, and I don't want to mess around with and experiment. I have slackware up and running with only a few bugs to work out - don't want to start over.
During the slackware install I partitioned my 20GB hdd as follows:
hda1 - 10GB mounted as / for slackware (reiserfs)
hda2 - 1GB mounted as SWAP parition
hda3 - 9GB nothing -- this is my quesiton
I was originally planned on installing anather distro on the hda3 partition so I left it alone during the slackware install. I have decided to use it with slackware. I want to mount it as /public-storage.
typeing cfdisk - it shows it is a linux partion, type 83 (or is it 82 - not infrom of system right now- wich ever is NOT a swap part.)
typeing - "mount /dev/hda3 /public-storage" yeilds an error about a filesystem type. (i did this as root)
During the setup of slackware, it said it 'formatted' the 2 partitions i used, how can I format hda3 to make it usable? Or is my old DOS 5 days coming out too much? I would like to make it a reiserfs.
Please give me a link or type some good instructions - i want to be carful and not damage/mess with hda1 or hda2.
