My guess is that Old-Polack will be along shortly to help you.
Thanks a lot. Maybe I
wanted to be a jerk
, and let this one slide, just to see OldVic
suffer. Now I don't have that choice
In the meantime, could you perhaps give a little more detail on what your hardware is?
The phrase "old 2 drive SCSI computer" leads me to believe that maybe you have one of the machines that was originally sold as a server that only had actual SCSI drives rather than a newer machine that has SATA drives that Linux sees as SCSI.
If it is a machine with true SCSI drives, are both drives on the same SCSI interface or does it have a separate interface for each drive?
I ask because I seem to remember that each SCSI interface identifies the drives by position on the SCSI train only.
That could make a big difference in how the BIOS and Linux determine which drive is which.
While the above is helpful, if the machine has been working with two hard drives, for any length of time, and has had them be uniquely identified in the past, this should not be a problem.OldVic:
It would be more helpful to see the results of fdisk -l,
so we could see how the machine sees the various partitions.[root@localhost ~]# fdisk -l
<Enter> <-- That's a lower case L not a number 1
.Post your results
Welcome to the forum.
Don't mind our little bits of craziness; that's how we keep ourselves sane around here.
