Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I have a 123gig hd, but in slack 8.1 cfdiskfdisksetup or whatever. i can not find it.. i even went so far i tried it in window. it worked i realy need the 123gig hd. i linux. i`ll allmost do anything.. any one know, what i can do to get the hd in slack?
What kind of hard drive is it? IDE, SCSI, USB, Firewire?

How is it formated? vfat or NTFS?
If NTFS to you have support enabled in kernel?

Assuming it is an IDE drive where is it located?
hda - 1st IDE controler master
hdb - 1st IDE controler slave
hdc - 2nd IDE controler master
hdd - 2nd IDE controler slave
etc etc.

fdisk-l /dev/hdx (to see how it is partitioned. x = location)

mount -t auto /dev/hdxy /mnt/<mount point>
(where y = partition number and mount point is a directory)

Is it USB?
look at loaded modules. /sbin/lsmod
What modules are loaded? USB drives look like SCSI i.e.

Same applies as above try mounting

mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/<mount point>
Its formated in windows 2000.. Not a ntfs or fat1632. One partisjon is fat32 (8 gig or somthing) cant find this one ether.

bash-2.05a# lsmod
Module Size Used by Not tainted
pcmcia_core 40896 0
ide-scsi 7456 0
3c59x 24648 1
So you never said what kind of drive it is and where you connected to.
its connected to sec. Master.
its a ibm deskstar
i just found the first partisjon.. it was a fat32 under /dev/hdd1.
the other one is nothing. the partisjon is deleted in window. any idee how i can get it back or somthing.
