I have a duel boot machine that runs Red Hat 8 and Windows 2000. Previously I had RedHat automatically mount my C: drive to /c, but since I have converted it to NTFS, which can't be read by Linux. So instead I want to be able to view my other FAT32 partition, D:, by mounting it at startup instead of having to mount it every time I want to use it. Where is the file I would edit to do this? Thanks
Eric

Dear Frodo
u need to run

kernel-ntfs-2.4.18-14.i686.rpm

to make Linux to understand the NTFS partition.

the same u will get at

http://prdownloads.sf.net/linux-ntfs/kerne....18-14.i386.rpm

run this rpm as follows
1) login as root
2) copy the downloaded file to /sbin .....(anywhere u can copy)
3) rpm -Uhv kernel-ntfs-2.4.18-14.i686.rpm
4) /sbin/modprobe ntfs (this is to probe the ntfs partition)

then mount the desired partition wherever u want

regards

echo "/c /dev/hdaX ntfs defaults 0 0" >>/etc/fstab

Replace hdaX with the appropriate partition and then type "mount /c". Remember, with ntfs, you cannot write to the partition. It is theroetically possible to, but it's not the safest thing in the world. That is one of the reasons why whenever I install Windows 2000 or XP, i use fat32 filesystem.
