sabayon linux mounting windows hdd
 
hi ive been trying to get into my windows hdd on sabayon linux mini ed 3.4. i believe its set as sda2, the main drive is sda or is it that sda2 a partition of sda? but i setup a folder to mount the drive to /home/user/windows. fstab only see's the main drive and its partitions. as well with mtab it only sees the main drive, since i thought sda2 was the drive i did this command "mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /home/user/windows" but it already had a mount point so i figured it was a second or third partition of the main drive and mine isnt being viewed by the partitioner or any other file? so how do i find out what the drive it hda,hdb,sdb,etc.... and once i do will the command i previously wrote work if i change out the sda2 for the actual drive?

sda2 is a partition on sda, if you've got two HDDs the second one will be sdb.

Try these (may need root) to see what you have
Code:

fdisk -l
df -hT
