Mounting multiple logical partitions - suse 9.3
 
Hey all, new guy here.

Got a pretty simple question that I can't seem to find an answer for. I'm using YaST's partitioner to mount my Windows partitions, and all went well until I tried to mount 2 logical partitons.

Just as a break down, this is what I have:

Hard Drive 1: hda
Partition 1=WinXP (primary) [hda1]
Partition 2=Linux Swap (primary) [hda2]
Partition 3=Linux Root (primary) [hda3]

Hard Drive 2: hde
Partition 1=NTFS (primary) [hde1]
Partition 2=NTFS (extended) [hde2]
Partition 2a=NTFS (logical) [hde5]
Partition 2b=NTFS (logical) [hde6]

I am able to mount all but the 2 logical partitions residing in the extended partition. It seems that only 1 will mount while the other gives me an error about being unable to mount the second logical partition. It's probably something really easy but I just don't know how.

Under fstab options:
Mount in /etc/fstab by device name: checked
Arbitrary option value: users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8

And the mount points are:
/windows/C [hda1]
/windows/F [hde1]

and i tried:
/windows/G [hde5]
/windows/H [hde6]

But i keep getting an error that [hde5] is unable to mount :\

This is what fdisk has to say about it:

Code:

Disk /dev/hda: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4865 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

  Device Boot      Start        End      Blocks  Id  System
/dev/hda1  *          1        2429    19510911    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2            2430        2557    1028160  82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/hda3            2558        4865    18539010  83  Linux

  Device Boot      Start        End      Blocks  Id  System
/dev/hde1  *          1        6375    51207156    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hde2            6376      24792  147934552+  f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hde5            6376      15554    73730286    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hde6          15555      24792    74204203+  7  HPFS/NTFS

Thanx

Hello!

You need a entry in /etc/fstab:

/dev/hde5 /windows/G ntfs noauto,ro,defaults 0 0

Thanx!

I'll give it a try.
