I have used the mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/vfat command after creating the dirvfat using mkdir /mnt/vfat however using this I can only access on hda1 the primary fat32 partition ....does any1 know how to access the extended fav32 partitionz ?

Try mounting some other devices (/dev/hda? and such). On Intel style systems, the first four (1-4) are for primary partitions and the rest (5-15) are for logical partitions. I''m sure that some of them will correspond to the other partitions that exist on that drive.

Type "fdisk -l /dev/hda"; that''ll show you all the partitions on that drive.

Note that before you type anything someone tells you to type, you should, for security''s sake, figure out what it does. "man fdisk" and looking for the -l option should suffice in this case.


How appropriate. You fight like a cow.
