    Chances are you do not have rights to them. Can you see in them? Are
    they mounted? Post the output of the following command:

    mount

    Also if you can see where the other partition(s) is/are mounted then
    post the output of the following command:

    ls -al /mountpoint

    The various mountpoints will be shown in the 'mount' command mentioned
    previously.

    Anyway chances are that rights for these other partitions will be owned
    entirely by 'root' so your regular user will not be able to modify
    things in there until you give your account rights. You can test this
    by temporarily becoming root, or opening a terminal or window as root,
    and then seeing if you can create a file in those partitions. You
    should NOT ever run as 'root' full time though so grant your regular
    user rights (once we know that's the issue help can be found here if not
    from your favorite friend, Google) and use it from then on.

    Good luck.

    I'd guess that you don't have the partition(s) mounted. Go to YAST, then System, then Partitioner. You should see all the partions.
    Just edit the partion(s) you wish to
    access and create a mount point for the other
    partiton(s), say /myothersystem1, etc.
    You should find that they are now mounted
    whenever you boot.

    If you're new to linux it's problem in older linux. But now the system detects partition and mounts them. Use KDE and on the menu click Computer to get the drives. If u can't access them then you have no permission. LogIn as root (just once) and right click on the drive and go to properties, then give read-write permission to user and press ok. Then logout and login as normal user.
