I have a hard drive with four partitions and two seperate installations of vector6.0 on them. I have lost the ability to access the home partition of the main installation, Vector 6.0 standard.
I recently unsuccesfully tried to install "Tiny Core" Linux on partition hda4. This computer can not be forced to boot from the CD drive. That is why I keep two installations on it so that I can install from a downloaded ISO to the unmounted partition.
When I reinstalled Vector 6.0 Light to hda4, the home partition for Vector 6.0 Standard on hda3 disappeared from the view of the main installation. I can still boot as root which is on hda2 but accessing hda3 in any way from the main installation brings up a message that the partition/file does not exist. The partition and the files on it do exist and are accessible from the Vector Light installation on hda4.
I did reinstall lilo from the Standard installation and the 'fstab' file appears to be correct
Is there anything I can do to recover access to the home partition of the main installation without moving the files off and reinstalling?
