Everything has been working great for the last six weeks. Of course, it decides to take a dump After I FTP'd my critical data to a directory called /ftpstore I lost my X server/windows environment and my Ethernet channel won't load. I have put four (4) Ethernet cards in hoping that a change in hardware would kick it in the pants. No luck. All eth0, eth1, eth2 and eth3 FAIL on boot. (I have left them all in so when I do get it going is will become a firewall.) I believe it is due to the IP configuration somewhere even though everything looks good.
OK,... so reinstall. Not a problem but I need to get my data off first. I have a 16GB drive (hda) and a 60GB (hdb) on the system. I need to move /ftpstore to hdb then do a fresh install on hda. The embarrassing part is I know how to add a hard drive with data into an existing Fedora installation, but I don't know how to identify which physical drive /ftpstore is really on before I wipe hda leaving /ftpstore on hdb.
I need help with the following:
1. Identify the physical location of /ftpstore (hda or hdb)
2. Ensure it is moved or resides on hdb (2nd hard disk)
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Oh, I tried cdrecord but ran out of disk space making the image. AARRGGHHH!!!
