Accessing files on my Windows partition


How do I go about accessing files on my Windows partition? Such as music. I have XMMS installed and I would like to play some music while I work on installing everything else I need, so Id appreciate a quick response

darktalon96 all you have to do is mount the windows partition, then just add the dir/files in XMMS

If the partition is NTFS, you might need to set a umask when mounting to be able to read it.

You can try something along the lines of;

mount -o umask=022 /dev/hdX /mnt/XXXX

EDIT - It's my Birthday
