Ok..I have just installed Linux, I chose Slackware 9.1 (rocks) and I want to now get my NIC card working.
I have downloaded the latest stable kernel (2.6.3) and have that on a NTFS drive in the system and I need to access it.
The boot up goes so fast I do not get time to see what it has set this drive up as and therefore have no idea what to mount.
Is there away I can find out what that drive is? Either in X or console I am not fussed.

Chances are, you're NTFS partition is located in /dev/hda1, but to be certain, let's find out.

fdisk -l (that's a small L not I)

This will give you a list of what partitions are on your hard drive, you should see one with "NTFS" in it as the filesystem type along with your linux partition (most likely reiserfs or something).

Let's assume it was /dev/hda1, then you would want to mount it and copy your kernel tree over:

$ mkdir /mnt/winnt
$ mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/winnt
$ cd /mnt/winnt
$ ls

There you go.
