Fedora core 3 mount windows FAT32 partition device busy


Hi Mate
I got a problem while using the new fedora core 3: Here is my system configuration

OS: Dul-Boot Windows XP and Fedora core 3
Boot loader: Grub
Kernel: kernel 2.6.9
Partition Hda1, Hda2 NTFS format; Hda4 linux swap; Hda5 ext3; hda6 FAT32( for the exchange partition)
Laptop: NX9005

When i install the fedora i plans to mount the hda6 in linux by using mount commant -t vfat when mount i can find the partition has been mount but when i try to copy the documents from this partition to /home directory the system apears no echo which force my to kill this session then when i try to shut down the it. The message which i got is device busy and need me to press power button to force it shutdown. Anyone in here can provide some solution about it. Thanks mate

PS: just ask another question about the Gnome 2.8 coz use to use KDE 3.2. How can i change the boot loader priority in Gnome 2.8? I can not find ant GUI setting function init. Anyboday and gives help. Thanks a lot.

If your system support "Chinese" (GB or Big5 or japanese), and your vfat have chinese or japanese, you should insert "codepage=xxx" and "charset=xxx".
I have the same problem, if the two options is not inserted.

"/etc/fstab"
=================================================
/dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 vfat defaults,codepage=950,iocharset=cp950,uid=500 0 0

I've just come across a similar problem. I can mount the partition fine but when I look in a directory that has 300+ sub directories konqueror locks up, this used to be perfectly viewable in fedora core 1's version of kde. it can be listed and edited fine from the command line though so there is no problem with linux its self. So if anyone has any comments !!

To answer the first persons question have you got your /etc/fstab file set up correctly
eg.
/dev/hda6 /media/e vfat suid,uid=0,dev,umask=000,gid=0,exec 0 0
then just run mount -a

The mask makes everyone have access to everything so may be kinda bad in terms of security, but good for getting stuff to work.

The boot loader can be changed by running system-config-boot if you don't have it installed you can just edit the /boot/grub.conf file

oops, should have though to check the filesystem first with fsck. That's solved the problem. Seemed I had some corput data on there that was causing kde problems when trying to list what was on there.
