hey guys ive managed to get my other 3hdds mounted includeing the one on raid, but when i add the mount ponit for the 120gb maxtor dimanod plus 9 in fstab, when i boot up again it gives me errors! errr if i can rember is think it said:

carnt mount bad super sector or to many drives mounted or somthing else

dose anyone have a clue to these errors? could it be i need to format my hard drive? its ntfs by the way the same as the others but my 120gb hdd has 70GB of stuff i need so i hope theres away around this without formating.

It helps if you use the code tag (button labeled #) for files and outputs as that retains the formatting.

Where/how is the drive installed? Is the drive /dev/hdk? Can you mount it manually?
Code:
fancy@uilleann $ su -
Password: 
root@uilleann # mount /dev/hdk1 /mnt/hdk
What happens using that command?

Is the drive on the raid controller or is it on the IDE chain? If it is on the raid controller and you have the other drives set in to raid 0/1, you might have a problem.

If it is on an IDE chain? You should be able to mount it by typing mount -t ntfs /dev/hdd /mnt/old_win, if it is on an IDE chain. If it is on the a raid controller use, mount -t ntfs /dev/sda2 /mnt/old_win.

Note: you will need to create the directory /mnt/old_win. THe device name may be different too depending on the location of the drive.
