New FireWire hard drive won't remount
I bought a FireWire enclosure for my iBook and put an extra HD in it. The install went pretty well (I don't like using the OS X version of Drive Setup to partition the disk though ). After the partitioning I put a bunch of files on the paritition I made for MacOS storage. Other partitions will be used for Linux, but they all appeared on the desktop for now.
My problems started when I unmounted the drive (I needed to use the FW port... Don't have a hub yet). I used the eject command on all the partitions that were on the desktop and unplugged the drive; no errors or anything at all. However; when I plugged the drive back in, the system reacted to it the same as if it were never partitioned at all; it ask me to use Drive Setup to configure it when I'd already done that (and used some of the partitons I set up the first time). Any ideas on what went wrong? It's not really a disaster (more of a hassle), but I would like to get the data back that I put on the drive. Any help is appreciated.
