hi
puppy installed a home dir on my sda1, called pup001 or something and now I want to view it on another distro.
"mount" tells me it's not a block device and "file" tells me its ext2.
how do other usually view it from another linux distro?

There's a package called Explore2fs that will open and view the file through Windows, so I'm more than confident it can be done from another Distro.

if, for example, pup001 is on hda1
if hda1 is mounted on /mnt/hda1
if you have mount point /mnt/tmp
you can type:

mount -t ext2 -o loop /mnt/hda1/pup001 /mnt/tmp

you should see your pup001 files in /mnt/tmp
