I have been "adjusting" my system over the last few days, changing hard
disk, copying from old one, adding DVD, changing cables and ide interface
etc + upgrade from Mandrake 8.1 to 8.2.
Anyway it is almost all working again.
The problem is that hdb does not exist in its proper format in /dev. It is
there as a link of unknown type and not as a block device.
How do I recreate /dev/hdb as a proper block device?
ps thanks for help re upgrading hard disc last week.
