    Free space


    Hi all!! I just erased a couple of ntfs partitions with the linuxconf option on the menu. Now i want to gather that free unrecognized space into one single partition accesible to linux. How do i set this up?

    I just made a big mess. I went into mandrake control center and erased and unmounted both partitions and made one. The option to create it in was usr/, i had others but not in mnt or custom directory. I don't care. Whatever. Now, when i came back, all cdroms and floppy drive entries in the fstab where changed and the icons on the desktop deleted. Why would linux take away those if i was just handling other partitions on the hard drive? Anyways, linux decided to rename al hd..s to how it wanted to be. As a newbie, that info irrelevant since i don't know what it's telling me. What i wanna do know is add the partition in usr/ as a new hard drive and place back the cdroms. How do i do this?

    check by using
    #mount
    and add in fstab
    /path/device /path/mount/point fstype options 0(in most cases) 0(in most cases)
    hope it work

    This little stunt had me re installing linux. Bit easier at the begging when configuring the partitions (swap and everything). But i have some issues there to solve. Thanks anyways man!!!! At least i got my free space ready to use.
