How can I access my hard drive from a Live CD? As far as I can tell the hard drive can only be accessed via /media/longnumberhere after its been mounted. Is there a way to access the hard drive a drive instead? (so it can be accessed by /dev/hda)

Not sure what this has to do with shredding...

To mount a drive in this manner, first locate it using sudo fdisk -l in a terminal (within the LiveCD environment).

Then determine the drive/partition you want and mount it as usual with the mount command.
