hard drive mount procedure


I've got 2 hard drives in my tower.
The first one is running a dual boot - Suse 10 / Win98SE.
The mount points show up as hda1 (windows) hda2 (swap) hda3 (native).
The second hard drive doesn't mount, but it does show up in hardware information as /dev/hdb

How do I mount it, and how do I get my system to automatically mount it when I boot ?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi,

To mount it, type the following into a terminal window:

Code:
$ su
Password: 
# mkdir /mnt/seconddrive
# mount /dev/hdb /mnt/seconddrive
# chmod a+rwx /dev/hdb
That will create a directory called 'seconddrive' in /mnt, and then mount /dev/hdb under it. The final bit will allow all users to read, write and execute files on it.

To set it up to mount automatically on boot, check out this tutorial. I would suggest you open up /etc/fstab and append the following line to it:

Code:
/dev/hdb /mnt/seconddrive defaults 0 0
Make sure you check that tutorial to find out what it means though

Cheers,

-jk

[edit] Hehe - oops...
