1) By using the command line. Hopefully your hard disk is listed in /dev. If it is, mount it using the file system you formatted it with. For example, if it is formatted with FAT, then:
Code:
#mount_msdosfs /mnt /dev/fd0

That would mount the floppy disk onto the /mnt directory. That's the only time I've used any type of mount command, so if you need to format the disk or mount it with a different filesystem, you will need to consult with the FreeBSD handbook, which should have everything about the system even if you have SuSE.

fd0?? I thought he said Hard Drive Neutral Not Floppy Neutral.

Not sure if SuSe does things differently, but it would then most likely be located at sda(partition #[usually1]). If that does not work, then make sure it is the right #, do this by running fdisk /dev/sda then press "p" and "return" (no quotes of course Neutral) and it will tell you which partitions you have, use that number.

If you actually read my post I state that I have only used the mount command for floppy disks, which explains exactly why I used it as an example.

I used dmesg | grep hd command to find name of the device.
Code:

And it was hdf and i know it was formatted with ntfs. Then executed
Code:
linux:/ # mount -t ntfs /dev/hdf /mnt
command and it worked.
Tahnk you.
