I hope I will be clear and concise here. I have two failed OS's on the same hard-drive. My working system is Ubuntu on hda.
hdb was originally a dual-boot Fedora/W2K:
It was the only hard-drive before I installed Ubuntu (on an old Maxtor) now known as hda. (My son set it up
I can't restore W2K because it isn't the primary drive.
And, I don't know a quick and easy way to mount the Linux (Fedora4) partitions from Ubuntu to recover my data off of Fedora. I care about the Fedora data...
Tried fstab but:
mount point /rescueA does not exist.
So I think I need to create a mount point for the broken Fedora install first. To retrieve files and such.
I'll deal with w2k install later... BTW: Tried unplugging the Ubuntu hard-drive but W2K can only see Disk 0 ID 0 and not Disk 0 ID1 on the w2k install. W2k is confused, it can only see the Fedora partition...(suggestions are welcome!)
Windoze install thinks drive d is my CDROM. Hmmmmm.
Okay, this all started with a new linux friendly Nvidea install...
We killed Fedora on the install of Ubuntu --oops, and I personally killed W2K on the video card install later...
How to set up fstab to mount other Linux distro's?
Yes I use grub.
I forget how or what to log/backup the grub(Ubuntu install): before I start reformatting drives I want to recover data from...
I know- too many questions... But when I figure it out I will document it. Promise....
All comments welcome
