I have installed FC6 in my PC along with winxp. I want to share my windows drives. The drives are D drive(hda5) and E drive(hda6).
It works fine if I try the regular mount command as:
mount -t vfat /dev/hda5 /mnt/WinXP_D
..and similar code for WinXP_E with hda6
But as you would all agree to mount this way each time you login is a pain in the ass. So I tried automounting by editing the /etc/fstab as:
/mnt/WinXP_D /dev/hda5 vfat rw,auto,user,sync 0 0
/mnt/WinXP_E /dev/hda6 vfat rw,auto,user,sync 0 0
But its giving error msgs as WinXP_D(and E) is not a block device,.. is write-protected,..cannot mount... in the second line trying to mount as read-only and then cannot mount as read-only also. I could not write down the exact sentences as the screen changes very fast.
What could be wrong? I had tried similar thing in RH8 and it had worked?
