I am new to Linux. I have Fedora 6. I need to copy some files that were created with the root account. I need to copy them to my usb keydisk. The keydisk is mounted and I can write to it and see it no problem. The problem I have is I need to be root when I copy the files. I opened a command prompt, typed su and put the password in. the problem is I dont know how to reference the keydisk in the command prompt window.
I had a look in the mnt folder but nothing shows in there at all. What is the drive letter equivalent for linux? What is the location of the keydisk?
Also is there a way to be root in the graphical interface? That way I could drag the files accross.
