Am I supposed to do anything between the two commands?

I got the same results.

When I tried "fdisk /dev/hdb" I got:

Code:
[root@localhost aje]# fdisk /dev/hdb
bash: fdisk: command not found

Once you run the /sbin/modprobe command I listed above, then you should be able to mount your second hard drive because the NTFS filesystem is now recognised.

Code:
mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb /mnt/win_c (or whatever your mount point is, I would not recommend pointing it to /home though)
the fdisk command is used to find out information about your partitions not to mount/access them, however if you still wish to run the fdisk put /sbin/fdisk or /bin/fdisk instead (to find out why you need to do this read up on "PATHS" or man the path command in a terminal.)

Cheers

Unhappy

No luck

Here's a copy

Code:
[root@localhost root]# /sbin/modprobe ntfs
[root@localhost root]# mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb /
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb,
       or too many mounted file systems
I logged out of root and logged back into my user account. I noticed that an icon for hdb was on my desktop. I double clicked on it and got this;

You certainly can't have an ntfs filesystem as your
Linux' systems root ...

What do you mean?

I was logged in root so I could edit my /etc/fstab.

I'm sorry ... i'm confused.

I'm talking about the single slash in the mount
command ... that's your systems root directory.
And it certainly can't be on an ntfs partition.

I strongly suggest that, before you muck around
with the system as root, you read at least a basic
introduction to Linux...
