missing partition on bootup
somehow I have ended up with a partition that suse 10.1 fails to recognise on boot up
I'm running an ancient dell dimension v400c with an 8Gb hard drive and 320Mb RAM. I did have dual boot (!) with separate win 98 and suse partitions but ran out of space so re-installed with suse alone. for some reason this gave me a logical volume partition arrangement (1Gb swap; 7Gb LV ) but this didn't seem to work.
I've rearranged the partitions by shrinking the logical volume to 5.3 and creating a separate partition of 1.7 on which I've put my home directory. however on booting I get an error message telling me that I have wrong permissions and ownership and it closes me down in less than 10 seconds. when I log in as root I discover that it isn't recognising the separate partition. I can then overcome this by typing in terminal [ mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/test ] and then relogging in as self at which point all is well.
I'm sure there should be of incorporating this command in the bootup instructions but am not sure how to do this - any help much appreciated
