    Smile [SOLVED] SuperBlock


    Hi all,
    In a ext3 file system partition like,
    /boot /hda6
    /root /hda7
    I have opened /hda7 and accessed the superblock for /root and /home.
    But say if i have partition like,
    /boot /hda6
    /root /hda7
    /home /hda8
    How should i access superblocks of /home?
    Do we have superblock both on /hda7 and /hda8 at offset 1024?

    ya...I found it by myself.
    It's enough to access /root to access /home even if /home resides in separate partition
