Here is how to fix that. . .
First off, you must run commands as root, which isnte really available
on DSL, so put sudo in front of every commend you run.
sudo mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
will mount the first IDE hard drive and shoud give you access to it.
Just remember to issue sudo before every command.
Works for me.
Exception: NTFS filesystems. DSL doesn't have support to write to NTFS
filesystems yet. (I have never needed to write there, just usually
recover data from crashed drives.)
