Hi Dave; I've never used Linux so if you could be more specific I'll try to research it for you;

Thanks for the sugestions

I want to mount a compact flash card from a embbeded linux thin client on my main linux box.

When I try to mount it - mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/flash it tells me Imust specify the file system.

This would indicate its not ext2,ext3 or reiser as mount would know what to do. -t auto fails as well.

Fdisk shows sdc1,sdc3,sdc4 all linux paritions.

Not sure why Wolfemole wants me to look at PAM ?
