I pulled hard drives out of two dead computers. They were old Linux installations of mine and the root folder was encrypted. I've got them attached to my newest Ubu computer as external drives.

I cannot figure out how to cd / to the external drive (variations on cd /dev/sdb/ all fail) and then apply the password to the root folder.

There is probably something rock simple I'm missing here, and any enlightenment would be appreciated.
