looking for my old "/home" after upgrading to Suse 10.3 from 10.2

Why can't my new system installed on /dev/sd1 see the partitions of /dev/sdb? Is there a way from Suse 10.3 to share the old partitions? It's mainly about the music files on the old drives I would like access to again...

Thanks in advance for any replies!

Do you mean on sda1?

Try - from a terminal as root - fdisk -l (that's a lowercase "L") to check that the partitions on sdb are still there, then

mount /dev/sdb? /mnt

wher ? is the releant partition number. The n look in /mnt for you files.

Any errors, give full details here

Of course you can always restore from your backup...
