    It says the drive is mounted
    How do I unmount it?

    Also how do I make it reiser instead of ext2?
    I dont need it now but I will in future

    root@slax:~# unmount /dev/hda1
    -bash: unmount: command not found
    root@slax:~# unmnt /dev/hda1
    -bash: unmnt: command not found
    root@slax:~# mke2fs -j /dev/hda1
    mke2fs 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
    /dev/hda1 is mounted; will not make a filesystem here!

    mkreiserfs = command for making reiser partitions.

    Do $ free -m at the CLI that will tell you how much ram you have. If it's 512, you can choose to skip the swap file, or not, it's up to you.

    Unmounting is done by typing # umount - and not 'unmount' . Cdmmon mistake.
    Debian Jessie x86_64 & armhf :: LibreELEC is the solution for your Linux-based HTPC setups.

    boot off the cd and at the # prompt type "cfdisk"
    normally i dont think you need this "/dev/hda" with one hard drive it will default to the primary master.
    I did not have to mount anything with the slack 10.1 4cd set.
    After the partition you'll go into SETUP and after your swap is detected it will ask you for ReiserFS or ext2, 3.
    I think reiserFS is the best option.


    good luck
