    second hard disk


    After the installation of Slackware10 I added a second hard disk (fat32 having winME). During the startup of slack I see that this device is recognized but after my login and startx (KDE) I see that in /etc/fstab the second hard disk is not present. How can I add this hd at my slack system? Should I add it manually at my fstab? (the Kernel I am using is bare.i)

    If it's the second drive on the same ide cable then it's called /dev/hdd, assuming 2.4 kernel.

    If so edit create a file as root in /mnt called harddrive2 or whatever you fancy.

    Then edit /etc/fstab

    /dev/hdd /mnt/harddrive2 vfat auto,users,rw 0 0

    should do it.

    Then you should be able to mount it with

    mount /mnt/harddrive2

    Thank you Chris H. I can read it now (I added the 2nd hard disk at the fstab as hda1 (it worked) and my dvdrom (I had the same problem, could not read it) as hdc (hdd is my cdrw and hdb my slackware system).
