Adding Filesystem Support

Hi, I'm stuck.

Have a hdd that responds with "Gnu HURD or SYSV" when i fdisk -l

Where and how can i get support for this filesystem and how to install??

I'm have Redhat, Mandrake, Fedora, Debian, Stormix.

I Need to mount the partition to get data of it, and there are no Unix Data Recovery software availible yet.

I Think the disk was running under a SCO box.

i haven't got this FS but i have compiled the kernel many a times and there is a section where u can specify what types of FS support u require and there are these ,which u mentioned above
maybe u should look for options in the kernel configuration

I tried "modprobe sysv" under Fedora and it was added in my /proc/filesystem. but looks like its not sysv on the hdd.

Is there a file system like HURD??

Also i've tried ufs. not working.

If i say "mount -t proc /dev/hdc /dev/target" it mounts about 512mb of data, but i can see in hex mode on the disc there is probably more than 60gigs worth of data...
