The partition should be /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2,...
Try "fdsik -l" to check.
Try "mount -t auto ..."
Case everything is working put your partition in /etc/fstab to
mount it auto magically, case of reboot.
"man mount" for more info

Good luck

What kind of scsi controller do you have for you hard disk? Which
version of Linux are you running?

You could try:
  mount /dev/sda4 /zip -t msdos

to mount the zip drive, but that assumes that your kernel has the
scsi driver compiled in, and that you have msdos file system support
and that you have a directory called /zip created.

Might want to do some reading in the HOWTO documents and man pages.
