I still can't get linux to recognize my 1st hard drive which holds the
linux files. I have two hard drives, 1st:western digital 1G using Ontrack
disk manager ver. 6.03C setup as a DOS drive. 2nd drive is a western
digital 250M setup up for linux only.
During installation, when prompted for the source drive, I enter
/dev/hda1, then I enter /linux for the directory. The system gives me
various errors about not being able to mount the drive. So I tried to
mount the DOS disk manually after I log in as root. I used the following
method to try and mount the disk (with no luck):
mount -t msdos /dev/hda1 /dos
I get this error message:
VFS:Can't find a valid MSDOS filesystem on dev 0x0301
mount: wrong fs type or bad superblock on /dev/hda1
[MS-DOS FS REL. 12,FAT 0, check=n, conv=b,uid=0,gid=0,umask=022,bmap]
transaction block size =512
I would be humbly grateful for some insight into this problem.
