I'm new at Linux but I'm pretty proud that I've been able to figure out how to mount *some* of my SCSI devices.

Using modprobe I can load the aic7xxx_old driver for my SCSI card. I can then mount my CD-Rom and mount one of my hard drives (two in the system). Right now I'm just playing and getting used to commands (not TiVo drive hooked up). My SCSI drives are NTFS...

I can mount the drive that is my normal 'C' drive using:

mkdir test
mkdir test2
mount /dev/sda1 /test (this give me my first partition)
mount /dev/sda2 /test2 (this gives me my second partition)

The problem is I cannot figure how what was assigned to my second scsi drive. How do I figure this out? I've tried sdb1 and many other variations. Is there a way to view what drives are assigned what so I can mount them?

I have a 2 gig SCSI drive that I have formatted with FAT32 that I plan to back up my TiVo to...

If you just need to back up your tivo drive, why don't you move your 2G to sda just for this operation?
