Hard drive sharing with win 98?


Hi, I have problems sharing my secondary drive with my win 98. It works in mandrake linux 9.2, but I can't reach it in windows 98. It says there that the drive is locked by another file system.

Try unmounting the shared partition before closing down Mandrake: umount /mnt/windows or whatever the partition is called. Then see what happens when you try to access through Windows.

I've done that, and i doesnt work, and when I return to Linux the drive is mounted again. It seems to mount itself when I log out.

Could you post your /etc/fstab file?

Try replacing /dev/hdb1 /mnt/datadisk vfat user,umask=0 0 0 with
/dev/hda2 /mnt/win vfat users,umask=000,defaults 0 0

I picked these up off another thread. I'm not entirely positive that this make a difference, but.......
