Hi, guys. I think this questions has been asked many times. I have three partitons in my PC: Win2000, WinXP and Fedora Core 1. All I want to do is access some files from the Win patitions so I can modify them in Fedora and save them back into the Win partitions(these are some images I want to modify using the Gimp). I created a small partition(FAT32), so I could put my files on this partition when working with Windows and the access them in Fedora. I'm no able to see this partition from Fedora. How can I mount this FAT32 partition or could I mount the NTFS??
What would be a simpler solution??
Your partition should already be detected by Linux. You should see it in the /dev directory. It should be named something like HDxx in /dev. In my case HDC6 is my 2nd NTFS partition witch contains " My documents" in XP. It is called win_d in my /mnt directory.
I can browse it an copy from it. I also have fat32 partitions witch I can read and wrtie to from both Linux and Windows.
To manualy mount them if they are not already there, create a directory for your fat32 partition in /mnt or wherever you like. Use a simple name ,short, with no spaces.
After that open a console, type su ,enter your root password and the enter the following command:
mount -t vfat /dev/YourDrive /mnt/NewDirectory.
You should then be able to go to your new directory and see the files on the mounted partititon.
Originally posted by cucolin@ So friends what is the equivalent of drive D in win. It is hda1??
If you created the d drive using windows it is probably /dev/hda5 and assuming you only have one disk drive installed in your system and its hda. To verify my assumption log in as root and enter the following command in a console window:
And yes these are very common questions. You can seach this website for additional help in mounting the FAT32 and NTFS partitions. I do not think that Fedora automatically configures windows partitions like Mandrake.
