I just downloaded Red Hat Linux 9.0 with every packet and im trying to browse files on my other partitions. Is this possible to do inside of red hat?
The reason i need to do this is because somehow hal.dll in the system32 folder of my windows xp install got deleted, so i need to put a new one in, or at least take it from my OTHER windows xp installation. Thanx in advance for any and all of ur help.
yes,you can access the other partitions once you have mounted them.
to mount your partitions,
1.find out the device drives of the partitions you want to mount using 'fdisk -l'('l' is a small L)
2.make a directory in /mnt folder using mkdir.example, 'mkdir /mnt/windows'
3.mount the partition like
mount -t vfat /dev/[device drive of the partition to be mounted,eg,hda1] /mnt/windows.
vfat is what linux calls fat32 file systems etc.
damnit, aight, i screwed up, i downloaded the wrong ntfs version and installed. i then went back and tried to install the versoin i needed and it told me i already had the updated version... how do i uninstall the old version or just overwrite it with the new one???
