Umm, how would I create an entry in fstab to mount a drive partition in AL?
I have 4 drives:
hda = 80GB boot
hda1 = 100MB boot
hda2 = 1024MB swap
hda3 = 75GB ext3 /
hdb = dvd rom
hdc = 160GB drive, 2 partitions
hdc1 = 1024MB swap (unused)
hdc2 = 159GB ext3 at /mnt/data1
hdd = 160GB drive
hdd1 = 160GB ext3 at /mnt/data2
In the fstab that AL created, there are entries with these normalish device names, but when I run mount, I get these superlong device names that I dont recognize - like "/dev/ide/bus0/lun0/part1" .
How would I map the above drives, actually I'm just trying to add /dev/hdc2 as /mnt/data1 and /dev/hdd1 as /mnt/data2?
Are these naming conventions some new linux standard, or AL's standard?
/dev/hda1 etc is linux kernel without devfs
ArchLinux uses devfs so the above becomes /dev/discs/disc0/part1
(hd0,0) = /dev/hda1 = /dev/discs/dics0/part1
(hd0,1) = /dev/hda2 = /dev/discs/disc0/part2
(hd0,4) = /dev/hda5 = /dev/discs/dics0/part5
(hd0,5) = /dev/hda6 = /dev/discs/dics0/part6
Take a look at this topic it has some examples you can check out.

I was able to get the "devfs" style of my drive names from the output of "dmesg | less".
