I have ubuntu 7.10 installed on my old fujitsu siemens lifebook s (128 mb ram, 20 gb hd..). I managed to trip over the power cord and now I can't get ubuntu to load properly. I decided to install a lighter linux version since I 7.10 did not run so smooth with so limited amount of ram, and since I am not qualified to fix the system.. However, it is still possible to log on to ubuntu, but only in a purely command-driven window. So I can browse the file system, but I do not know how to copy these files over to an external unit. So the question is; where can I identify an external unit (usb-drive) in the command window, and successfylly copy my files to this unit?
Need help copying files from partly broken ubuntu..(4 posts)
