I am not on a large version this is a very basic version of Linux that i am using, i believe it is based on the Gentoo version, not sure tho... i am using a LiveCD version called Rescuecd.

I met tux only yesterday, or mor eof late lastnight when i decided to just have a look at the linux OS... been meaning to for a while now...
My half bro recommended for my 1st version of linux to used a very basic LiveCD version...

Yeserday when my half bro was teaching me commands he taught me how to mount & unmount my drives... i was taking notes of most things but forgot those... Could somebody please tell me how to mount and unmount my drives please?

I have 3 Drive, my

C:< Internal - Maxtor
D:< Internal - Uknown
and
F:< External - USB 2.0 Maxtor 2300

I also have a USB MP3 player which acts as a "Flash drive" he demostrated the mount and unmount commands by getting me to do it with this Flash drive... so if could help doing the Flash drive again would also be apretiated =]

Another problem i am having is installing software, i have downloaded a few mini games for linux and some applications, i have also downloaded the manual update for Java console but i cannot open it... i tried to go into Mrxvt terminal and found the downloaded installer but couldnt figure out how to open it =[

If any1 has any answeres to any of these questions please post as soon as possible =]

Thanks in advance

What you need to do is open my computer / My linux or something of that sort. Find the drive that you want mounted and right click it. Select mount volume.

It might be in /usr/disks/local or /usr/disks/removable.zip.1

No. It might be under properties in the right click menu. Click the drive once with the right-button. There should be an option to mount drive or partition.

Or try: mount <path of drive>
