How to mount a HDD with a complete system (7.2)

Hello guys,

I recently installed fedora core 2 in a brand new hdd and everything is working fine. Now i have an hdd with a old system (redhat 7.2) that has some stuff i'd like to copy to the new fc2. I've connected the old hdd, and at the system startup it gives error when detecting the new hardware and trying to update fstab. I seems it gets a bit confused because it sees to hdds with two different systems.
I'd like to mount the old system in a /mnt/old_sys dir...
Will i need to manually edit fstab for all partitions of the old hdd?

To list the partitions run
fdisk -l
as root. You will probably have at least a /boot partition, a / partition, and a swap partition. Just find your / partition's device, and then just add a line like this to fstab:
/dev/hdb2   /mnt/old_sys   ext2   defaults   1 1
You have to find the right device, and change ext2 if you have a different filesystem.
