      I haven't tried installing ipkg-web, I will do that now in the mean
      time I have learned the fdisk command and here are the results if it
      helps

      # fdisk -l /dev/sdb

      Disk /dev/sdb: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 30515 cylinders
      Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

      Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
      /dev/sdb1 * 1 16084 129192808+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
      Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary:
      phys=(704, 239, 63) should be (704, 254, 63)
      /dev/sdb2 16084 30515 115917480 f Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
      Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary:
      phys=(677, 239, 63) should be (677, 254, 63)
      /dev/sdb5 16084 30515 115917448+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

      It appears that I want to mount /dev/sdb1 but this still fails

      now to install ipkg-web
