I want to replace my winxp setup on my home server.
PClinuxOS2010 installs from the live cd very well (the quickest and easiest I have ever seen) and all hardware is listed.
The boot drive is a pair of maxtor sata 80gb in a raid 1 This is all OK (I think- I'm typing this ok with it..... ).
My problem is the other two drives.These are two Samsung 1tb sata disks.
These will only store the data.
Ive tried raid-ing them, but for the moment have given up due to "I cant recognise " error messages.
I now would settle for two separate drives.
They need to be NTFS and I would like them as one full volume each.
I have used gparted and the configuration control centre to format them (NTFS as all the clients are windows)
I cannot mount them.
I have googled and tried "mount -t ntfs/dev/sdc1/mnt" in root.
Nothing happens - no error message and no drives appear .
I searched NTFS into the package manager and downloaded everything I could without any change.
Any ideas would be very welcome but please keep it Very simple
(its taken me 3 weeks to get this far!)
