    Question Newbie can't see hard drives or network drives


    I am trying to use Mandrake Move in order to rescue some files from a hard drive and put them back on a network drive. My problem is this. I am naive when it comes to the Linux enviroment.

    Move boots up fine however, it cannot locate any of the hard drives connected to the system. Then to make matters worse I can't seem to locate the network drive. I understand that Linux is very powerful and I am behind the learning curve (so hence my post) but I have never had this much trouble before.

    If someone could post an idiot type guide to help me I would be very grateful.

    Thank you.

    If you open the home icon on the desktop,
    you should get the konqueror file manager.
    The go menu at the top should lead you
    to hard drives and network drives, if they were
    successfully detected and mounted at boot time.

    Thanks - I will give it a try this evening. I am in dire need of getting some data off of a HD so I can format it and build it back up.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all will work out.

    It should be able to locate a HD that is connected via a USB to IDE right?

    what if my network drive is of the NAS variety? How would I direct it to the path?

    i.e. in win I have to go to run and type //jammer/share

    Thanks.
