I normally use knoppix version 3.9 live cd on various machines I use. I have no problem finding the mount point of ide hard disks usually in /mnt. If I cat the file /etc/fstab sata hard disk is never there. I have experienced similar problems with ubuntu 7.1 even when installed.

fdisk -l
dmesg | grep sd

If you use the command 'mount' with no arguments you will see what filesystems are mounted and where they are mounted.

what does the command `mount` output?
what does the command `fdisk -l` output?

Sorry for taking too long to mark this thread as solved. 'fdisk -l' does the magic. Thanks DimaYasny!
