Problems mounting hard drive with live USBview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello. All This is the problem I am having, when I mount a hard drive. To scan with rkhunter. Using this, sudo mount /dev/sda6 /mnt/safe mount goes good, but when I cd into /mnt/safe all I see are the files on the live USB? I am thinking this is not what I should be scanning.

External HDD powers down too fastview story

http://forums.anandtech.com – I've got an external USB hard drive that wants to power down very quickly after it is unused. It's in this StarTech enclosure.

I've had the drive for a while now, and it always seemed to follow what I had set in the power options setting in control panel, or at least took a lot longer than 3 minutes. (Hardware)
