another mount problem


I'm a first class linux noob with RedHat 9.0 and I have a little problem.

I have a partition I want to mount in Linux. I need some MP3 files from the partition. It is converted to FAT32. I would like to mount that partition but i can't find it in my "/dev". The partition is called "hdb1" but i can't find it anywere so i can't mount it.

Need some help please.

And excuse me for my english

thank you

try this as root:

mount -t vfat /dev/hdb1 /some/dir/to/mount/to
So if you want to mount it to /root/MP3:
mount -t vsfat /dev/hdb1 /root/MP3
should do the trick.

i already tried that. But the problem is that Linux can't find "/dev/hdb1". There is no hdb1 in the map dev.

how do you know it is in hdb1?

Did you locate it with fdisk -l

Try as root in console:

fdisk -l

Identify the partition that Mp3s are on (it will say W95 FAT32). It is hdb only if you have 2 harddisks. If you have 2 harddisks, then the problem is somewhere else. If you only have 1 harddisk then the partition can't be hdb1, it has to be hda1 or something with hda in it.

You will get all the info from fdisk -l

Good luck!
