NTFS Partition Read/Write Access Help


I need to be able to have read/write access to two NTFS partitions. And i need to add both strings to fstab file. But i don't know what two lines i must add to access to hda1 and hda7.
What eles besides adding the two lines to fstab and reboot must i do to access it? I created a winxp directory in /mnt

And a shortcut from that directory to desktop. I'm thinking once i click that directory, I should see my partition and folders in it.

I just need to do this to use linux. i only need to be able to listen to music and save files to my backup partition.

usually you have to compile that capability into your kernel, although be warned its is very experimental and could do any number of things to you system, many of which are far less than pleasant

Slack is great, but you'll run into ntfs write problem anywhere in linux until someone figures out a better way to do it. Still, i always recommend the switch to slack, its just as easy as a red hat install, you just need to know how to install a boot loader, very easy.

ok i setup my windows and data partitions, both are ntfs. the other thing i need to do is add permissions for me to use it without having to start a terminal and login as root and run a program threw it. since http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/ntfs.html doesn't speak english and somehow wants to make things hard. can somebody tell me what to add at the end of dev/hda7 /mnt/data ntfs ro

So i can quicky access my files o rplay mp3s.

I can't execute things.
