Making Libranet recognize other hard drives


I installed Libranet on an unused 12Gb hard drive. I use two other drives, a 120-GB one and a 9-Gb one, for Mandrake Linux system and personal files.

I can't figure out how to get Libranet to recognize the existence of the other two hard drives. All it sees is the one it's installed on. I couldn't find a utility to mount the other two drives such as you can do with Mandrake Control Center (if you're lucky and it happens to work right).

Maybe I'm overlooking something simple, but this has me stumped. I wanted to be able to import my bookmarks, access my spreadsheet and word-processing files, etc. Then after I've done some actual work with Libranet for a while, I thought I might switch from Mandrake to Libranet--largely because of the wonderful reputation of Debian and the apt-get mechanism which I've already tried and been bowled over by. What I might have struggled with for hours or days using rpm's with resultant "dependency hell" was done in a matter of seconds for me by apt-get, no loose ends! Call me very impressed.

I'm using ext3 file systems throughout.

can't you just

# mkdir /mnt/onetwenty
# mount -t ext3 /dev/hdXX /mnt/onetwenty

where /dev/hddXX is the drive of choice, like /dev/hda1 for first IDE, master, first partition
or /dev/hdd3 for second ide, slave, third partition.

Thanks, I'll copy your reply right now and try it out tomorrow. I'll go into the BIOS setup screens first and write down all the assignments, as I never can remember them correctly!

(Next day, after trying it out as promised...)

That was really easy. You can see I'm not much of a Linux whiz...

Thanks again for enabling me to access my own files.

So you don't have to do this every time, you can add the other drives to /etc/fstab
just use the line for the Libranet drive as a template for the others
