Assuming that the drive is installed in the computer, SUSE may see it automatically. Look in /mnt or /media to see if a mount point has been set up.

"fdisk -l" to see how the computer is seeing the harddrives and partitions.

OK--I assume that the "old disk" is hda (since sda has the Windows partition)

Did you check to see if SUSE automatically generated a mount point?

To mount it from scratch:
cd /mnt
mkdir part1
mount /dev/hda1 part1
cd part1
ls


similar procedure for the other partition

To have it mount automatically, add an entry to /etc/fstab See "man fstab" for details

What do you mean "nothing happened"?

Your listing shows that you successfully mounted the partition hda1, got into it with cd, and did ls. I shows that you have one file or folder named "lost+found". Try ls -al to see EVERYTHING--including hidden files an verbose information.

Is it possible that what you are looking for is on hda2?

WHOA!!!!--i just noticed that hda1 is swap. You need to look on hda2 and hda3. sorry I missed this earlier.....
