Thank you to every poster.
I used ...
# sudo mkdir /home2
# sudo mount /home2
Which partially worked ...
Initially I used the whole disk as one big folder, but, unable to
place files as "user", I read enough about permissions to believe I
needed "folders" so I created one.
Now I have an mp3 folder in the former Win2K partition which is now
fully available to "user" as well as root.
I learned quite a lot from this problem and now hope the solution helps
someone else too.
Thank you all again.
