Mounting NTFS RAID 0 in Fedora 6


I am trying to mount a raid 0 NTFS array that has my windows os on it but am running into a slight problem here are the code details

Here is the fdisk -l info for the two disks that are in the raid

Disk /dev/sda: 74.3 GB, 74355769344 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9039 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Disk /dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table

Disk /dev/sdb: 74.3 GB, 74355769344 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9039 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 * 1 18080 145226576 7 HPFS/NTFS



here is the info on the raid mapper

[root@localhost ~]# fdisk -l /dev/mapper/nvidia_chcejihh

Disk /dev/mapper/nvidia_chcejihh: 148.7 GB, 148711407616 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 18079 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/mapper/nvidia_chcejihh1 * 1 18080 145226576 7 HPFS/NTFS


and finnaly here is the code that I threw to try to mount it
(after using dmraid -ay to make sure everything was active)

[root@localhost ~]# mount /dev/mapper/nvidia_chcejihh1 /mnt/win -t ntfs-3g -rw -o umask=0000

Failed to access '/dev/mapper/nvidia_chcejihh1': No such file or directory


can anyone let me know what I am doing wrong, If you need any more info please let me know.

Thanx
Goodie

To be safe, backup your data before going any further.

After backing up, type ls -l /dev/mapper and post the results. Also is /mnt/win created. If it is not, the device will not be able to mount. I recommend mounting it as read-only as a test. NTFS is still experimental even with the 3g version. If you created Dynamic Disk within Windows, you may have to load the LDM module.

ok here is the mapper info

[root@localhost ~]# ls -l /dev/mapper
total 0
crw------- 1 root root 10, 63 Apr 24 09:44 control
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 253, 0 Apr 24 09:44 nvidia_chcejihh
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 253, 1 Apr 24 09:44 VolGroup00-LogVol00
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 253, 2 Apr 24 09:44 VolGroup00-LogVol01


yes /mnt/win is created

I checked in the windows disk manager the array is not a dynamic disk
