I wanted to say hello. I am a long-time Ubuntu user and member of this forum, but the latest ver (11.04) has made me stray .. I installed Debian Squeeze today. As my one and only distro/partition.
Any tips or dos and don't from here ? The install went well, I solved a couple of little things already, but I have one biggie that someone here might help me with.
I made my full data backup on a flashdrive, while I still had Ubuntu. Now Debian says it can't read it. "bad superblock" it says. I looked at dmesg and it said "no VRS found". I ran Disk Utility, that says the flashdrive is OK. I took the flashdrive to my daughter's PC, which has Windows on it, the flashdrive and all the data on it was recognized OK. So I think the problem is Debian assumes my flashdrives are formatted with ext 2 or ext 3, when this flashdrive is formatted with FAT32. Am I right ? I think Ubuntu is flexible in this and will mount it.
What do I tell Debian so it will mount this FAT32 flashdrive ?
It loads OK on a Windows pc, so its not corrupted.
I will appreciate any help or suggestions.
