When I use
ls dev
there's no refernece to the sda6 partition at all.  The list reads:

adb         fb       kmem        misc        pts         scsi        urandom
cdroms    full      kmsg         null        random   shm       vc
console    ide      log            port        rd           tts         vvc
discs       input   mem         ptmx       root         tty        zero

In my attempts to mount the disk I managed to mess things up. Therefore, I
reformated with 3 partitions, one of which I formatted as MSDOS FAT32 (which
MacOS sould see) hoping to use that as an 'exchange partition' (as per 3.6.1
MacOS/OSX Partitioning of the manual
http://www.us.debian.org/releases/sarge/powerpc/ch03s05.html.en#id2517119) I
can't find that one either.

Looking in 'disks' or 'scsi' I find paths to various 'part1, part2, etc' of
the disk but have no success in mounting one. Maybe  I'm not doing that
right? What command do I enter?

Sorry friend, how do I check if the modules are loaded. If not, how can I
load them? Do I have to use something like ctrl,alt F3,4,5 or 6?

Thanks for your patience,
