You'll find the basic information in the gentoo handbook.

Basically, each device has its own device file in /dev. IDE hard disks (except SATA ones) are called /dev/hd# with # being an alfabetic character starting from a (primary master) going to b (primary slave), c (secundary master), etc. SCSI disks and most SATA ones are called /dev/sd# with a similar naming convention.

Partitions on the disk are named after the disk with an additional number. For instance, /dev/hda1 is the first primary partition on the first disk.

But I'm reiterating what the handbook sais...

You can't write to an NTFS.

To copy files from one disk to another:

Assume that the drivers are mounted at /mnt/part1 and /mnt/part2, then to copy files over is as simple as using the cp command:

Code:

~# cp /mnt/part1/path/to/file /mnt/part2/path/to/destination
