HD appears twice?
I have two hd's on my machine. I installed Mandrake on primary disk.There was a Windows XP installed on secondary disk but i wanted to switch to Linux completely so i just erased an XP's system directories and added some directories for music and stuff. Now i have starnge things in my /mnt: i have /mnt/hd which is mounted,but has a zero size and appears as empty,and /mnt/windows which is mounted and there are my directories inside.Ok,so i looking in my /etc/fstab and see:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows vfat umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0
none /mnt/hd supermount
dev=/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/part1,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,kudzu,codepage=850 0

I just tried to remove a second line but it is reappearing after reboot. :mad:
Please,help me to fix it.

Why do you have the first line. Are you using the partition in Fat32 format although you no longer have a windows installed?

I did not formatted it,just deleted Windows. Can i convert it to Linux format without loosing my files?

I believe so, but I'm not sure and wouldn't kow how to do it either ... willing to learn though. Anyone?

I think that's not posible because the way to keep the files.
Make a backup of the windows partition and then format the hd. Then edit your ftab file and put there every partition you have made and delete the windows one.
