Question finding devices with vector


I've installed the latest release of Vector on the master drive on the primary ide controller. Added a second drive as the slave on same. Since there is no "my computer" icon, how do I check devices in vector? I tried ( # ls /proc/ide )and( # fdisk -l /dev/hdc ) but no list appeared for either. Ran live version of SAM. It has a "devices" icon and showed both drives, their labels, and file systems. Even showed that second drive was formatted for windows. I'm too new to linux to be sure of those commands above or to know my way around vector but i would like to keep it for now. Anyone familiar enough with it to point me in the right direction?

Are you looking for a way to have the other drive/partition mounted? Vasm should be able to do this: vasm -> SUPER -> (give root password) -> FILESYSTEM -> MOUNT -> ADD.

To see a list of all available partitions, use
Code:
fdisk -l
xfce has a devices icon in the taskbar, but I think it only displays partitions already listed in fstab: http://img205.imageshack.us/my.php?i...creenieco5.jpg

I hope this helps.

yes, thank you. mostly i'm trying to learn. as for the 2nd hard drive, i am wanting to make sure vector sees it and can access the files on it. although it was partitioned for windows, the sam linux(live) had no problems with it. and, although vector is installed to the first drive(linux partitions) and is booting just fine, i have yet to learn how to make all existing hardware work and how to add hardware. I'm building a desktop so i can get this laptop repaired. screen died.

It is unclear to me if you still need some sort of help or if this is solved.
