With what kind of OS did you install the HD? MagiC uses long filenames
with VFAT (I haven't heard it being available for Hades "already") and
Mounting of VFAT should be something like this:
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt

Another thing comes to my mind: Do you use the install programm of slink?
It has a bug, it fails to recognise partitions in a drive, when the first
partition exceeds half of the complete HD volume. But since it recognises
the SCSI partition, it is unlikely that the bug causes the problem. Is
this SCSI partition the only one on this drive?
Where do you want to install Linux?
