    Dual boot - how to acces files on windows partition

    I have a dual boot system with windows xp and red hat 9. I want to know if it is possible for me to access files on the windows partition while I am in linux. The windows partition is nfts. I want to use mp3's. Is there any way to do this and if so, how do I do it?

    Have a look at this: http://www.getlinuxonline.com/yabbse...;threadid=2171

    NTFS is not 100% supported. There is full read support, so copying from Win32 to Linux shouldn't be a problem but only partial, and experimental write support for NTFS. It could mess something up.

    You're kernel must be compiled to use the NTFS file system. If it's not then you'll have to do so in order to do this.

    I put in those commands and it said

    mount: mount point /mnt/windows does not exist

    It says that for both commands.

    Re:Dual boot - how to acces files on windows partition

    Oh yeah, you probably don't understand the full meaning of the command. /mnt/windows is like the equivalent of c:\ in a Windows system. On a Slackware machine it would exist. However on your system it might not.

    Check to see if you have a /mnt directory, and if you do, become su, and cd into that directory then do a mkdir windows. After that you should be able to use the command as it is.

    You can also create a directory in your home directory if you wanted to. For example my home is something like: /home/skynet/ so while being in my home directory I could do a mkdir windows then use /home/skynet/windows in place of /mnt/windows and my Win32 drive would be placed in that directory.

    Does this help clear anything up?

    also, if you have multiple users that need to access your /mnt/windows partition and you would also you like to have the stuff in /home/<user>/windows you could do a link,
    ln -sf /mnt/windows /home/<user>/windows
    do not quote me on the syntax of that command as I have not used linux for about a year due to college and not being able to do my work in linux :-\
