cd /mnt
mkdir extra
mount -t ext2 /dev/hdb5 /mnt/extra
Small explanation: if you have many partitions on primary slave, experiment with different numbers (/dev/hdb1,..../dev/hdb8). One of them will work.
To unmount
unmount /mnt/extra

I forgot to ask you a question... Why is the RH6.2 installation not booting? Do you need help with this?

You can run fdisk -l /dev/hdb to get a listing of the partitions on hdb. Then just try mounting the ones listed except for the ones named ' extended ' or ' swap '.
