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?

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.
