I'm sorry for this dumb question, but I'm cloning some PCs and not very familiar with linux. Anyhow,
I'm using the command umount, and have been given,

umount /dev/disk0/drive0/part0

and it hasn't been able to find them.. I'm not surprised, but is there a way to find out what
arguments I should be using, as in /dev/disk1/drive0/part1 type thing?

Again, sorry if this question is dumb..

you will see what is currently mounted

some linux distros use a mounting scheme like the one you are trying to use ... other use /dev/hda1

what is is linux distro?
