    How do i mount a Windows partition under RHL??

    Hi guys,

    I have DR-DOS on drive C: I setup my Windows XP pro which made a drive called F: and i have Redhat Linux 9. Out of all 3 OS's i have. How do i mount my Windows partition under Linux?? Is it also possible to mount a DOS partition under Linux?? Please reply back. Thanks guys.

    Edit: I want it read-write not read or write only. It has to be read-write. Thanks.

    or try right clicking on the desktop and click on "disks" see if windows is in there.

    I read through it and i don't understand it. I seriously don't think my Windows is under /dev/hda1.

    hello,
    it says that it is an example - it is not intended for every situation.

    to unmount, like the pet says, type umount /mnt/example

    Hi,

    Now you really got me lost. I don't even know where my Windows is.

    Read support for ntfs (WinXP default I think) is okay, write support is dodgy, I wouldn't use it - nor do I think the default RH setup even ships the module so I would advice that you forget the read/write access idea, it's simply to dangerous currently (getting better though).

    ok this is exactly what i did and i tied. I put a floppy in my drive and right click on the desktop and click disks. It really didn't matter wether it was a good floppy or because it did not work. Well i went to the home folder and clicked on /etc and then i clicked on fstab. I copied it and open up a text editor and then past. I clicked on the floppy on top of the editor where it says save. I went to /mnt and floppy. I named the file that i want to save and then i clicked save but it did not save the fstab file for me.

    I think you are missing the point that Linux is nothing like Windows. You probably thought you saved it to the disk, but probably did something wrong. The floppy might have been formatted in Linux, which Windows can't read. As for reading files off WinXP from Linux, you might as well not even waste your time.

    If you really want to learn and use Linux, I suggest you read this set of documents. It's pretty much a handbook for Linux answering most of the questions you ask, and a lot of the things you don't understand.
