Thanks to the article "Linux and parallel port IDE devices", I have
managed to get my Datawise Quickdrive external HDD working in Red Hat 9.
Despite being a complete newcomer to Linux, following the advice given,
I found that
insmod pd drive0=0x378
mount /dev/pda2 /backup
works perfectly (the HDD in the Quickdrive has 2 partitions, and
'backup' is the directory).
One question, though. The mounted partition is formatted in FAT32, so
how come Red Hat was happy to mount it without the "-t vfat" phrase?
No virus found in this outgoing message.
Checked by AVG Free Edition.
Version: 7.1.362 / Virus Database: 267.12.8/166 - Release Date: 10/11/2005
