If you did, it's quite likely that the other two drives will be getting used somewhere. Have a look in /etc/fstab for entries marked /dev/hdb1 and /dev/hdc1. These are the names given to the drives. The DVD will be something like /dev/hde (you will see it in /etc/fstab). > Hope this all makes sense if not I will try to give more detail if > somebody responds I don't use Samba, so I can't really tell you how to do it. As long as they are partitioned, you should be able to use them as Samba shares by telling Samba that they are shared drives and the set the permissions correctly. > Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free. > Checked by AVG anti-virus system (http://www.grisoft.com). > Version: 6.0.772 / Virus Database: 519 - Release Date: 01/10/2004 That explains a lot.
