Hey Chris. If you want to mount your HFS partition, and you know what
partition it is, just do:

mount -t hfs <hfs partition> <folder>

<hfs partition> = /dev/hda#
<folder> = any folder on your drive, typically /mnt/hfs or something

If you don't know what partition your HFS drive is, you can use pdisk:

pdisk /dev/hda (that should be right, since you only have 1 drive)

then type 'p' to see your partition map.

I hope that helps!



A lecture is a process where information is passed from the notebook of the lecturer to the notebook of the student without necessarily passing through the minds of either.
