what kind of drive is it? is it another hard drive? a usb drive or soemthing? when you mount it can you cd into the dir and see the files? Also what game is it. a lot of games need no cd cracks to run on cedega.

its a 15gb ext3 partition, the game is quake3 and i can see the files, the path i used when i installed was "/mnt/storage/quake3/" to run it i used >cedega /mnt/storage/quake3/quake3.exe then on the startup it said "cannot find default.cfg" as if its looking in the wrong directory

let me know if you have success. i know a lot of games wont work on cedega unless you have a no cd crack even if the cd is mounted.
