Frustrated trying to mount FAT32 drive

fdisk -l
Shows all of your drives.

I was confused about mounting drives, I didn't understand the concept of /dev/hda0 /dev/hda1
I thought there was a physical file or directory called /dev/hda0 and so on. Therefore, when I tried doing a: $ mount -t vfat /dev/hda2 (partition 2) /home/me/drive1
it told me that it did not exist.

I finaly found out that the fdisk command with the paramenter -l will display a list of your harddisks and removable media.

I felt I should delete the thread because the problem was listed on page two of this forum so there was no point of a double post.

But there ya have it.
