A few months ago, I setup a 2nd hard drive on my RH 9 box. Last night, I tried replacing that with a new disk (which was NTFS formatted). It gave me errors on bootup, so I ended up getting rid of the entry and now I'm trying to put the original drive back in place. Hopefully, I didn't lose my 20 GB of data on the first drive.
When trying to get rid of the entry, I did "rm /dev/hdb1" rather than removing the entry from /etc/fstab. Now I can't get it back - maybe I deleted all my data?
Here's the error I'm getting now:
[root@drevil /]# mount -t ext3 /dev/hdb1 /data
mount: /dev/hdb1 is not a block device
