    mount windows partition

    Hi guys

    in redat 7.3 I was able to mount my windows 98 partition and access. however, in redhat 8.0 its not the same. Simply how do I mount my windows partitions in RH8.0 and access it.

    this is the error I'm currently getting

    Could not mount device.
    The reported error was:
    [mntent]: warning: no final newline at the end of /etc/fstab
    mount: can't find /mnt/hda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

    Nothing has changed. You are doing something wrong.

    Post a copy of /etc/fstab and the output of sfdisk -l

    Re:mount windows partition

    without a copy of /etc/fstab i can only guess, but this is what i think:
    mount: can't find /mnt/hda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
    you are tying to mount the drive onto a folder called /mnt/hda1. maybe your old one was called /mnt/windows?
    you will have to edit /etc/fstab and fix the line relating the windows drive to point to the correct folder name.

    maybe if you post /etc/fstab, and the output of : ls /mnt

    Re:mount windows partition

    Hi m8

    when I mounted my windows partition in RH7.3 I only edited the /etc/fstab. As you've pointed out the /etc/mtab do I need to edit this too?. Cos I only edited the /etc/fstab in Rh8.0

    Re:mount windows partition

    no, you only have to edit one of them.
    post the things I/JimH told you to post and we should be able to get you fixed up

    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/hdc1 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
    /dev/hda1/mnt/winhdauto user,defaults 0 0

    Re:mount windows partition

    right i think this is your problem.
    there is a folder in /mnt called hda1, but the line in /etc/fstab says it should be called /mnt/winhd
    you will have to change one of them so they both say the same thing (im refering to the last line on fstab)
