    Writing on Poor Man's Fat32 Partition

    I have installed a seperate Fat32 partition to start Knoppix ("FromHd") . Up to now, I did not succeed to copy with Knoppix any files (for exchange with Windows) to this partition, because I can not get write access. The partition cannot be mounted from root - the message comes up, that the drive is "busy" or mounted as "CDROM". Is there any possibility, to write on such a partition?

    Gruß

    Yes, you can do a remount, even if the device is busy:

    mount -o remount,rw /mnt/hdaX

    Should work.

    Update:
    On second thought:

    When KNOPPIX uses the harddisk as boot device than it will mount the device (dev/hda??) at the /cdrom directory:

    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw /cdrom
