    To start off:
    man mount
    man fdisk

    Show what disks are available and what's mounted:
    fdisk -l
    mount

    This command will show disk partitions recognised by the system:

    Code:
    cat /proc/partitions
    Then you just need to create a mount point and use the mount command to mount the partition.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    All your attached devices (hard-disks, usb-sticks) should also show up in Konqueror - Storage Media. Click F5 to refresh the page!
