RE: Problem with mounting hard disk after FC5 installation

I ran partprobe on /dev/hde and that changed the error message to the
following:  mount: /dev/hde1 already mounted or /mnt/sata_files busy

Unfortunately, it stil won't mount, unmount, or anything else.

Per your suggestion, I ran the dd command it it ran fine.  No errors - all
data copied.
