Mount problems for hard drive partition in ubuntu 6.06


Hi folks,

I recently partitioned my hard disk (gparted). Problem is I cannot access (copy files from my primary partition).

Please help.

regards,

Krishghosh

A little more detail is required.

Can you mount the drive? Can you 'see' the partitions? Do you get an error response when you try to access the particular partition?

yes i am able to see them in file browser. I made the following changes in /etc/fstab:

/dev/hda3 /mnt/part1 ext3 defaults,auto
/dev/hda4 /mnt/data ext3 defaults,auto

but, i am unable to trasfer files from my main partition (with ubuntu) to the above ones.

do let me know if any more data is required. Thanks for the help.

/dev/hda3 /mnt/part1 ext3 user 0 0
/dev/hda4 /mnt/data ext3 user 0 0
