mounting extra hard drive
How do I mount and access a 20gig Hard dirve that is set up as a slave drive, and as a Fat32 partition on it, with my Linux Web Server. I do not have a very extensive set-up of X, just enough to run Netscape. I also need the Hard Drive to be accessible by my Windows machines, and by my Linux machines. Currently, none of my Linux machines will show up on Windows, but I think that is a problem with my Samba server.

First, find out what device Linux see the HD as. To do that look at the boot
up messages or type 'dmesg'. I'll assume it's /dev/hdb

Second, create a mount point all partitions you wish to mount. You can call
these mount point whatever you like. For example "slave1". I would
suggest putting these mount points in /mnt. To do this type 'mkdir /mnt/slave1'.

Third, enter the mount command for all mount points. For example,
type 'mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/slave1'. In that command I assume partition

good luck.
