    Question:
    How do I mount the hdb drive?
    I believe the drive was use on a older machine with a ext2 file
    system.

    Thanks

    List the partitions and their types:

    fdisk -l /dev/hdb

    Mount one (read only at first):

    mount /dev/hdbN /mnt/temp -o ro
    ^^^^^^^^^
    Put your favorite mount point here.

    Add '-t ext2' if required. If it works, you shouldn't be.

    Yes this worked. I mounted hdb1 and was able to read the files it
    contains.

    Thanks
