Re: Strange behaviour non-linux partitions: HELP



Hi Paul,

Ok, my memory, so following your suggestion. 

First commented out the lines for the windows partition in fstab.
Rebooted: so nothing really mounted in /mnt/windows:
[root fedora hans]# mount -l
/dev/hda7 on / type ext3 (rw) [/]
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
usbdevfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw)
/dev/hda6 on /boot type ext3 (rw) [/boot]
none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
[root fedora hans]#
[root fedora hans]#

then started a terminal window in superuser mode and:

[root fedora hans]# cd /mnt/windows
[root fedora windows]# ls	(OK, nothing there)
[root fedora windows]# mdir c
Can't open /dev/fd0: No such device or address
Cannot initialize 'A:'
[root fedora windows]#

It seems that I do something wrong (newbie, IT-specialist, but coming from Billy...). The system seems to think that I try to do something with the floppy-drive???

any suggestion?
