    look at the output from fdisk -l and find what your partition is called e.g. hda1.

    then mount with mount /dev/hda1 /to_some_mount_point . that is all there is to it.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    Doesn't SuSE put an icon on the desktop for each non-root filesystem it finds? If so, just click on the icon and it'll mount the filesystem and open a file manager. You can close the file manager, and the filesystem will stay mounted (as indicated by the little green triangle in the corner of the icon). Or you can right-click on it and pick the option to mount it.
    Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!

    Not necessarily Zelmo, it is KDE which does this through HAL, iirc you'll have to enable this option in KDE control center.

    It's not on the desktop. It's under 'My Computer' which really just opens 'media:/'

    Intel Centrino Duo 2.0GHz
    nVidia GeForce Go 7400

    The real question is what time is it and why the hell am I still screwing around with my computer?
