Exclamation Accessing different HD's on a dual-boot system


Ok, heres the poop-scopp :

i have win2k and Fedora Core, dual-booted. Is there a way I can access my other hd's from fedora or windows?
I have two HD's and I want to view my hd that has the windows partition on it. Or I want to view the other HD with the Fedora files on it...
How do i do it?

Ok I do know how to do it through linux but I've never tried through windows so I cant tell you that bit.

You need to know the partitions but for example lets say its /hda1

#creat a folder called /hda1
mkdir /hda1/

mount /dev/hda1 /hda1
# that mounts the windows partition in the folder /hda1 then you will be able to access it.

From the windows point of view I have no idea.

heres a handy little thing for accessing linux partitions in windows, my advice is to be careful with it though!!!http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/explore2fs.htm
Not near as good as strikeforce's method of mountin the filesystem in linux though, be careful!!!

Yeah my assumption was and correct me if I'm wrong is that with xp you can't actually view linux partitions but earlier versions you could. I mean like if its on the same harddrive or even on separate harddrives. IF you have separate computers you can easily but thats a separate issue.

yeah the difference in xp is that it has NTFS file system on it's partition, whereas win2k uses fat32(vfat). vfat can be viewed under most linux distros i think, but not NTFS...
