Question Auto-mounting ntfs partition in fstab


Could someone tell me how I would auto-mount and ntfs partition in fstab so all users can access the drive. I had it setup last night and it only let root access the drive but I think I screwed it up.

Thanks

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0

Replace "hdb1" with your windows partition.

NTFS is read-only in linux. You can screw up your data if you try writing to it in linux.

If you need more info, do a search here on "fstab ntfs" or "fstab AND windows"...also search smbfs for Samba mounting/sharing.

Uhm... Just for the record and future consults over here, linux has a driver known as NTFS-3g that allows rw NTFS partitions on linux.

YOU! websurfer go2 http://74.125.47.132/search?q=cache:...ient=firefox-a


or try something like... I remember that in options you should use something like... umask=0222

#<dev> <mount point> <filesystem> <options> <dump> <check_fs>
/dev/<your partition> /media/<mount point> ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0


official web site @http://www.ntfs-3g.org/
