Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Running RH9, kernel 2.4.20-31.9
trying to mount an 80G Maxtor drive. model 6Y080L0
In secondary slave position, jumpered slave.
I'm trying to make one 80G fat32 LBA partition accessible from both Linux and Win98.
I partitioned this drive as Fat32 (LBA) w/ fdisk in Linux, formatted it in windows. Windows can read it, but scandisk found bad sectors which it supposedly fixed. made a directory in Linux (/mnt/d) but when I try to mount I get the error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd1,
or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
i ran fsck and got:
fsck 1.32 (09-Nov-2002)
e2fsck 1.32 (09-Nov-2002)
/dev/hdd: clean, 11/10010624 files, 314137/20010816 blocks
this would have found a bad superblock, correct?
I also tried deleting the partition and making and formatting a linux partition to see if it would mount that, but no luck there either. In fact, after formatting it in Linux and rebooting it doesn't recognize the partition table because fdisk -l shows this:
Disk /dev/hdd: 81.9 GB, 81964302336 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 158816 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes
Disk /dev/hdd doesn't contain a valid partition table <<<
My BIOS is set to autodetect and chooses LBA by default, but if I change settings from autodetect to 'user' and let it auto detect the type it chooses CHS. I have no idea if that has anything to do with anything though.
Win98 has no trouble reading or writing to this drive, I just can't get it to mount in Linux. Other LBA drives and windows partitions mount fine, and I'm not mounting them all at the same time, so it shouldn't be a "too many mounted filesystems" problem.
I'm having the same troubles with my /dev/ataraid/d0p1
I moved the computer to a new case, added a video card and a hard disk and now it doesn't mount my RAID drive :-(
when I searched for this error on google, I got a lot of people asking about it and nobody answering, or saying "IM me and we'll work it out." So I think geting at least an explanation of the what the problem is online would be good.
In my case, the RAID drive is reiserfs formated, and it worked fine untill I moved everything. I was very carefull to preserve the cable oder (it's raid0, I don't want to screw that up!) and I've never had troubles with it before.
The server is Linux only, so I can't test it under windows.
