can anyone tell me what exactly to put into /dev/vfstab to mount a FAT32 partition outside the Solaris partition?
first of all I don't know how to determines those c0t0d0p?
my partition table should look like this:
Primary
1: NTFS
2: x86 boot (Solaris)
3: Solaris
4: Extended

and my extended looks like this
5: ext3  (Linux /boot)
6: ext3  (Linux / )
7: NTFS
8: FAT32
9: swap (Linux swap )

and now I want to mount the FAT32 partition which is a logical partition
with permission where all user has rwx access to it...

Thanks.

Hi there

Normally you would mound a partition as follows:

mount -F pcfs /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0:1 /mnt # SCSI DISK
mount -F pcfs /dev/dsk/c0d0p0:1   /mnt # ATAPI DISK

Where c0 is the controller number.
      t0 is the target (SCSI ID number) (omit for ATAPI)
      d0 is always 0 for SCSI, the drive # for ATAPI
      p0 is the partition (p0 is the entire disk, or p1 - p4)
      /mnt is the mount point
      :1 is the logical drive (c - z or 1 - 24)

Note: p0 refers to the first primary partition and p1, p2, . . . refers to the logical DOS partitions found in the extended DOS partition.

[ Disk naming explained :-) ]

To mount the partitions automatically, put something like this in /etc/vfstab:

#device           device         mount    FS    fsck  mount
#to mount         to fsck        point    type  pass  at boot
/dev/dsk/c0d0p0:1 -              /c       pcfs  -     yes       -
/dev/dsk/c0d1p0:1 -              /d       pcfs  -     yes       -

This mounts the DOS partitions (assuming it's the first partition) on /c and /d, respectively, on startup. For more info, see "man pcfs"

That should get your FAT32 partitions selected and mounted correctly.
