I have a C1000 and have recently purchased a 4gb Hitachi Microdrive (3.81 available)

I am using it in under Qtopia 1.5.4 as supplied by Figlabs.

Initially I was able to see the drive in File Manager, and copy files to it but not save them directly from the Hancom applications (I checked it was 777)

Then I changed the partition table to 2 x 1.91GB drives.

When I put the CF card in the Zaurus, it mounted the first partition which worked wonderfully in Qtopia (including Hancom) but I could neither mount nor see the second partition.

I am happy with having the drive split, but would appreciate help on how to recognise the second partition.

Incidentally, I am also a victim of the 2GB SD limit, and I am thinking of partitioning this card to 1.9 + 0.1. so info on mounting the second partition of that would also be useful

Bless you all,

It is showing me /dev/hda2

but I cannot create a mount point as all of the entries in /mnt are links to /usr/mnt.rom

this presents two difficulties
firstly I cannot write to /usr
secondly I do not know how to create a link

thanks

/usr/mnt.rom/cf is just a directory (mount point) AFAIK.

mkdir /mnt/cf2

and then make an entry for /mnt/cf2 in /etc/fstab similar to the one for /mnt/cf except with /dev/hda2 instead of /dev/hda1. I believe the key is that the directory would be auto.

Someone can correct me if this is the wrong line of thinking.

BTW I just saw some of your answers in another thread. If you cannot mkdir on /mnt, please show us what is the result of "ls -al /". On my Z it is a link to /var and then to /home.
