having tried to write all this script
knoppix@ttyp0[knoppix]$ mkdr /tmp/hd
bash: mkdr: command not found
knoppix@ttyp0[knoppix]$ mkdir /tmp/hd
knoppix@ttyp0[knoppix]$ mount -t ntfs /dev/hde1
mount: only root can do that
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# mount -t ntfs /dev/hde1
The consol spits out this:
Usage: mount -V : print version
mount -h : print this help
mount : list mounted filesystems
mount -l : idem, including volume labels
So far the informational part. Next the mounting.
The command is `mount [-t fstype] something somewhere'.
Details found in /etc/fstab may be omitted.
mount -a [-t|-O] ... : mount all stuff from /etc/fstab
mount device : mount device at the known place
mount directory : mount known device here
mount -t type dev dir : ordinary mount command
Note that one does not really mount a device, one mounts
a filesystem (of the given type) found on the device.
One can also mount an already visible directory tree elsewhere:
mount --bind olddir newdir
or move a subtree:
mount --move olddir newdir
A device can be given by name, say /dev/hda1 or /dev/cdrom,
or by label, using -L label or by uuid, using -U uuid .
Other options: [-nfFrsvw] [-o options] [-p num].
For many more details, say man 8 mount .
And I still have this error message when trying to open the hard drive hde1 from the KDE desktop:
"Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified "
