    Disks and Files using Linux – SUSE

    Locked

    by night-owl-24-7-365 ·

    Working with Disks, how can these items be done:
    format a disk,
    create an ext3 file system,
    create a DOS compatible file system,
    copy files from your Linux system to Window and back,
    mount a floppy disk,
    mount a CD Rom,
    set your system to automount from your CDROM drive

      To format: mkfs /dev/fd0
      To make an ext3 filesystem: mkfs.ext3 /dev/fd0
      To create a DOS fs: mkdosfs /dev/fd0
      To copy files back and forth: copy to floppy or CD or use Samba
      To mount a floppy: mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
      To mount a cdrom: mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom (assuming /
      dev/hdc is your cdrom device, replace as necessary)
      To automount from a CD: not sure if you can do that easily in
      SUSE or not… Mandrake uses supermount which is ok. You can
      configure amd to do this (an automount daemon)

      This is all off the top of my head, so experiment as required.
      Doing “man mkfs” should give you some pointers as well.
