Flash drive with 2 partitions...how do I mount the other partition?


I currently have DSL installed on a flash drive with two partitions. I would like to be able to mount the other partition in DSL so I don't have to add all my files to filetool.lst.

As of now, DSL only seems to detect the partition it is on. I would like to be able to mount my other partition. I also can't get it to mount my Windows partition. At the very least I would like to be able to mount the other partition on my flash drive. Is there any way for me to accomplish this?

Thanks!

Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been insanely busy.

To answer your question, no I haven't tried doing that yet (I've mostly dealth with actual hard drives). I'll try it out once things slow down a bit.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Ok, I tried out what you said and it couldn't detect /dev/sda (I tried them all just in case). I can't even get it to detect my regular hard drive. Anyway, here are the results of using dmesg and fdisk:
