    Default Red Hat9 can not recognise vfat partition in 2nd disk

    Hi, all

    I have installed Red Hat 9 and window 2000 in my PC in 1st disk.
    they works well. after i add 2nd disk, windows 2000 ask me to
    create a "Simple Volume" on it, and i did so. then I made 2
    partition on it(fat32). every thing is OK in windows 2000.

    but when i turn to linux, fdisk show only 1 partition in /dev/hdb.
    and this partition own the whole disk space. so i can not read/write
    data in the partitions in my 2nd disk.

    why? do i need to build a module to support windows Simple Volume?
    who can help me without change any partitions in my 2nd disk?

    thanks!

    You need to find out what a "Simple Volume" is. Ask a Windows person.

    Some research for you:

    "Upgrading a disk to dynamic storage will render the entire disk unreadable
    to operating systems other than Windows 2000. This is a one-way process. In
    order to change back to basic disk format, the drive must be repartitioned.
