Re: Partitioning for ext3fs

It will hang..."the process of backing up files"?
How so, any error messages, can you kill the process?

New equipment is SATA with recent version of FC5; No problem when
running by itself. I just haven't been able to read or see this
external because I have to wait till FC5 boots; then it's to late.
I have tried various timed events but still no worky.

I don't know if I understand you correctly: you've upgraded to FC5 and
the external (USB? SATA?) drive still "does not work"?

Can I make an entry to /etc/fstab or some related config file as you
would to mount a new floppy or CD?

Still not ext3-related, but "man fstab" should help:

/dev/cdrom  /mnt/cdrom  iso9660  ro  0 0

...should be a good start.

This is my first time at the ext3 forum and a new Linux user,
so any help with commands or procedures to implement ext3,

I'm not sure about the problem you are describing. If something (anything!) does not work the way you'd expect it to work: send error messages, typescripts of the *exact* things you did and what *exactly* did "not work".

or whatever would be the best suited fs,

Ext3 ;-)
