    removable disk (help)


    I have an ipod video that i want to use like hd in a notebook that have a SW 11.0 (only with command line); the usb port is ohci (i dont have idea what it minds). The notebook is a thinkpad 770ed by ibm.
    The matter is that i dont have idea about mounting it in sw 11 in order to use it like hd. How i must mount it?, i need to make some changes to the ipod or i can mount it how it comes when i buy it?.

    I have no idea of this, someone can help me?

    Thanks.

    as an example:

    mount -t reiserfs /dev/hda3 data (data is a directory that you make).

    it depends on the data type (if it reiserfs,vfat,....) and for the /dev/ probably in your case it'll be sda1 or whatever you can have a look.

    if you want that when you plug a usb devices or insert a cdrom it'll mounted automatically so download the following packages from LinuxPackages: View
    dbus,
    hal,

    and install them,

    not you should have a kernel-2.6 installed and udev in order to get this features to work.
    Reply me if you have some problem with dbus/hal.

    hope this help
