In this new box trying to mount it gives a "mount: /dev/hdc4 is not a valid
block device. If I alter /etc/fstab to change the zip identifier to the more
common hdd4, I get "mount: /dev/hdd4: can't read superblock"

Can anyone give me some advice as to what's going on?


fdisk -l

No zip identified here. ;-(


You can also have a look at "/proc/ide/*"


In /proc/ide/ I have ide0 and ide1 files, links to the files hda and hdd, and two files of 0 bytes, "drivers" and "via". The link hdd holds 7 additional files of 0 bytes each; capacity, driver, geometry, identify(locked), media, model, and settings (also locked). What should I be seeing here?
