I don't believe that linux will alow you to mount a fat32 drive as /home, as there's no way to set up file permissions on fat32 like linux does on its native filesystems. You can, however, create a link to the drive in YOUR home directory so you don't have to wander to /mnt all the time...1. How do I set read/write permission to a hardrive?
I mounted my shared drive between my windows xp and linux as /home, but when I attempt to boot using a user it says I don't have read/write permission, how can I change that? BTW i use RH7.2.
/dev/hda1 /windows/C ntfs ro,noauto,user,umask=022 0 2
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/Shared vfat auto,user 0 0
as su: ln -sv /mnt/Shared /home/<yer-user>/
This will create a symbolic link (sort of like a windows 'shortcut') to the shared drive in your home directory.
You're running NTFS on your Windows C...DO NOT try to enable write access to it! You *will* kill it. You'd have to recompile your kernel with ntfs write enabled, but DO NOT DO IT!
RedHat 7.2 doesn't have any NTFS support by default, see http://www.getlinuxonline.com/omp/di...at/ompntfs.htm for more info.
If you need to share files between OS's, setup another partition with fat32 or fat16 so that you can safely read & write to it, like you've done with your "shared" drive:
Here's what my windrives look like under Mandrake 8.1:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/winc ntfs iocharset=iso8859-1,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/wind vfat iocharset=iso8859-1,umask=0,codepage=850 0 0
You should have gotten a util called ksnapshot installed with KDE. It might be labeled in the menu as "Screen Capture"...use that instead of installing Gimp.2. How do go about using using desktop capture in KDE. I dont have gimp installed, so is there any other way?
