forgot to ask very fundamental question.
now i have this 20gb external USB baby, how do i mount it under
mandrake? i have mandrake 8.2 on my old desktop machine and need to get
into the mdk partition on the drive that came out of my laptop - now in
the USB caddy - to retrieve some data before i wipe it.
im not sure what device this then becomes, so i havent managed to mount
it yet... where should i be looking?...
