Continuing from another thread in which I mentioned my problems trying to use the TI Rescue Disk, I was asked by Acronis to provide the "sysinfo" diagnostics. I tried to follow the procedures described (for saving the information to a flash drive), but came unstuck very early on. When I entered the cat /proc/partitions command, the output was somthing like this: 8 0 983552 scsi/host0/bus0/lun0/disc 8 0 983280 scsi/host0/bus0/lun0/part1 I guess that this is the 1Gb flash drive (formatted for FAT32), but I can't work out how to mount it, based upon the example given. Can someone help with the correct syntax for this device ? I also mentioned a problem with my mouse and was aksed if it was a usb mouse. I suppose the answer is Yes: it is a ps2 mouse connected to a usb port. The connector will also support a keyboard, but I'm not using that. I guess I could try a usb mouse plugged in directly (I need to use the connector for windows as my m/b does not have a ps2 connector and I want to keep on using my beloved Logitech FX trackball).
