Mounting Hard drive on Ubuntu Live Cd
Hii guys,

how can I mount my hard drive while using the Ubuntu Live Cd,

Are there any commands for it?

I tried to do it using nautilus, but it gave an error saying something like unable to execute pmount,

So, can u guys tell me how to mount my hard drive using Ubuntu live cd,

You'll have to mount in the command line as Root.


# mount -t <file system type: vfat, ntfs, etc.> /dev/<sd* or hd*> /mnt
You'll need to specify the file type if it's anything other than a standard GNU/Linux type. You'll also need to specify which partition of the drive you want to mount sda*, sdb*, hda*, hdb*. SCSI devices: sda - master, sdb - slave. IDE devices: hda - master, hdb - slave.

you can list the available partitions with fdisk -l
then perhaps mount /dev/hda1 /mnt or something similar.
