I am reconditioning an old IBM T21 PIII with 256 RAM and a 20G HD.
The good news is that Pardus, surprisingly, works quite nicely out of the box. Impressed.

I made a mistake though. Instead of partitioning the HD before I installed Pardus, I installed Pardus on the full drive and then thought "m*rde..., I should have put a SWAP and an extra partition".

So I used Puppy to get into the system (because I could not use Gparted from Pardus on a drive mounted which holds the OS), and re-sized the drive into sda1 (10G), sda2 (swap 1G) and sda3 (storage - 9G).

Re-booted into Pardus, and the SWAP was recognised OK, but sda3 was not automatically mounted. When I click to mount sda3, it refuses to do so.

What did I do wrong?

Thanks atolboo, problem solved.  Wink
In addition, I just had to open a console under root and chmod the permissions.
