Re: Problem mounting Promise Fasttrak66



Hi
This is what I understand, correct me if I am wrong. You have a running
linux machine with two additional disks hde and hdg. These additional
disks have non-Linux data (windows OS). hde and hdg are of each 20G.

Your disks hde and hdg are properly connected. Your fdisk reports 40G for
hde1.

In your FastTrack BIOS (Cntrl+F) at boot time, it is possible that you
spanned the two disks hde and hdg together. If so, try mirror or stripe
instead of span in the FastTrack BIOS.

Good luck
