In what way modified? Did you modify it? I'm not usre you can mopunt it without some fairly serious mount-options knowledge.

my fdisk looks like this:

Disk /dev/hdb: 46.1 GB, 46115758080 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 5606 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hdb2 14 5476 43881547+ 83 Linux
/dev/hdb3 5477 5606 1044225 82 Linux swap

And I am running linux on EXT3 .. i think that 83 is ext3..
(ext2 is same as ext3, only ext3 is a journalling fs like ReiserFS, etc.)

But I am clueless in how to access the drive..
mount -t auto /dev/hdb1 should work..

or try the following as you have not configured the drive like /dev/hdb

mount -t auto /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/part1

try all parts (part1.. part2)

but you have to mount as root. at least on my system i have to be root to mount anything.

I don't think you need the "-t auto" at all. It will scan for known filesystem types anyway I believe.

1. Make sure you are root.

2. Make sure your mount point exists... "mkdir /backup" ... for example

3. Make sure you have created a filesystem on the partition... Did anyone every run "mke2fs /dev/hdb9" for example? you have a Linux partition entry alright... but I what about a filesystem? Don't run this if it has already been run, but if it hasn't, it needs to be.

4. Make sure your syntax is right... mount /dev/hdb9 /backup for example.

5. Run "fsck /dev/hdb9" to check the filesystem

-K

*EDIT* Just to clarify... DO NOT run "mke2fs" on this partition if there is already data on it... it will get erased. But if this is a new partition that has never been mounted and used... that command needs to be run to actually create the new filesystem. "mke2fs /dev/hdb9" will make ext2, and "mke2fs -j /dev/hdb9" will make ext3

Well without knowing how it is modified then I don't know how to help you. Maybe talk to the person who modified it.

Hmmm... I didn't really understand anything there. Looks like I'm out of my depth. I've no idea how to mount that.
