I installed a hard drive in place of a CD Rom. KDE still has the icon for the CD Rom on the desktop and the system still thinks that it IS a cd rom. I have Mandrake 9.1. How do I get KDE/Linux to "automatically" see the changes?? Or how do I manually make them??

Thanks

check in you /etc/fstab and remark out any entry for /dev/hdx (x is your new drive).

You will then need to create a partiton on the new drive (use fdisk) and then make a new file system on the new drive (mke2fs -j /dev/hdx will make it ext3).

you could then mount it by making a directory (mkdir /mnt/newdrive) and then you can mount the newdrive like this:

mount /dev/hdx /mnt/newdrive
