you will have to mount the second hard drive.

make a directory in /mnt called windows

run this command in terminal

mount -t auto /dev/hdb0 /mnt/windows


Then the windows partition should be mounted under /mnt/windows. So go there and all the windows files should be there.

the hard drives work like this.

hda1 hda2 hda3 etc

the "a" means that this is the primary master hard disk, the number is the partition. so becuase You have two hard disks, I assumed that "hdb1" would be the first partition on the second hard drive.


unmount what you have just done with the following command

umount /mnt/windows

Try with another hard disk

no
its not working. i tried hda1-4 hdb1-4 and the unmount says

[root@localhost root]# umount /mnt/windows
umount: /mnt/windows: device is busy
umount: /mnt/windows: device is busy

maybe i need to give it time.... or restart?

just found this command

/sbin/fdisk -l

This will list all the partitions on your system.

The parition in buysy because your are currently browsing in it.

Get out of the directory you are in by going down a directory

cd ..


now you can unmount.



take a look at the partition in /sbin/fdisk -l and find the FAT32 one, that should be the device you have to give to the mount command.

type

cd /

then unmount and see what happens.

if that does not work we will have to do a lazy unmount with the following command.

umount -l /mnt/windows
