I sampled Kubuntu and also found it dodgy.

Try the manual command line. First, I suggest you create a mount point 
in /media called data.

    mkdir /media/data

Then, do this:

    mount -t ext3 /dev/hda1 /media/data

That's assuming the file system is ext3, and the partition you want is 
actually hda1.
