I wouldn't have a problem doing that, but there's data on the drive that I don't want to lose. That's the whole reason I've been trying to mount it- to pull out the data I want and /then/ format the evil bugger.
Another option would be to use a livecd to pull the data off the drive e.g. Knoppix, Slax, or SysRescueCD (I don't know if spelling is right for the Sysrescuecd one). Then you could format it then and there after the data has been pulled off.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
