mounting an external hardrive
I've got an external hardrive that i which to be accessible to the suse parttion, but i realise that when the ext hardrive (usb) is plugged in and i start up suse 9.1 it would freeze, and if i remove the usb cord it resumes the start up. how will i be able to properly mount y ext hardrive :confused:

first try to attach the drive after the bootup is finished. If this doesn't freeze the system, you should be able to access the drive. I don't know if Suse will do it for you automatically. If it does, it will show up somewhere. If not, the USB drive will appear as a SCSI device. you can check dmesg to see where it is. You can then mount it by something like
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/USB1

Of course, the mount point has to exist and the device name has to be correct (for me it's /dev/sda1)
