    To mount an ntfs partition using the ntfs-linux driver, try using the -rw switch instead of the -r switch. I peronally consider this dangerous.

    To mount a fat32 partition:
    1. create a directory to mount it on.
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/fat32
    2. mount it
    Code:
    mount -t vfat /dev/hdx /mnt/fat32
    where hdx is your fat32 partition.

    Although I am a newbie but I do this to mount my FAT32 drives :
    Code:
    su
    (enter root password)
    cd /mount/windows
    mkdir d
    mount /dev/hdax d
    exit
    hdax is the drive which you want to mount (x is a number)
    .......
    If you want to automount the drive when you log on add the mount commenad to the end of your .bash_profile file.
    This will be over soon, and then I can ...

    umm, add it to your fstab instead please

    when possible we like to see the use of proper methods, over a lil hackish ones that get the job done

    As he said, add it to the fstab. We have a tutorial about it here.
