i can see the second hard disk partition but i can't access it. :confused: :confused:

MY /etc/fstab:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbkey vfat user,iocharset=utf8,umask=0,sync,quiet,exec,codepa ge=866,noauto 0 0

i'm completely confused.

what should i do??

BTW i'm a new linux user so please be easy on me, don't explain it with technical terms. :confused:

well, what is /dev/hdb1 supposed to be (/home, /, /tmp, etc.)? when you partitioned it during the instalation, what was its mount point?
let assume it is supposed to be /home, where you will keep all of your personal files. you will need a line in your /etc/fstab like
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2 or
/dev/hdb1 /home ext3 defaults 1 2 but note this is just a sample. you should replace /home with the proper name of the partition.
Hope thats simple enough.

i actually partitioned it AFTER i finished installing fedora.

it was brand new and...yeah.

i'll try then.
