hi guys,
ok so basically ever since i installed my 160 gig seagate harddrive, whenever i go into the explorer in dsl (eflem?) and go to /mnt/hda55 (after i mount it) i get heaps of folders called " / " that i cant go into.. ive tryed a loopback install onto the F drive and i get "error creating loopback.. read only filesystem". its realy weird and i need to get an install on the F drive. i tried to use the "mount -rw dev/hda55" command and also the "mountrw" versoin and this makes no difference.

ive searched and searched but havent found any1 with my specific problem and havent yet found a solution. plz help

thanks in advance

I am assuming you are trying to do a soft mod by connecting the new drive to your PC. Why don't you do it like everyone else and use XBoxHDM. That way, some people may acctualy know how to help if something goes wrong.

ok let me explain..
ive got dsl RUNNING fine, just the ftp version (not installed, i did have it installed but have since deleted it to try and fix this problem)
dsl is working.. but for some reson my /mnt/hda55 folder looks like this:

/...
/...
/...
/...
/...

^heaps of folders like this that i cannot get into..
i have figured that if i can get dsl to read my f drive properly then i can install it on the f drive and my problem will be solved
does any1 have any idea how i can do this?
thnx

I believe xDSL supports loopback installs to E: only. Native installs to F: only.
If you want somethinig different, your going to have to mess around with the install scripts or do it all manually.

I too have had a number of 'false' directory entries when mounting F:
Don't worry about it, just gnore them. Real directory entries should still show up.

I don't think so. My F drive is over 200 gb and I've mounted it in XDSL, though I did (still don't know why) have a number of useless directory entires, the real ones showed up as well.
