Today I installed Fedora (Core 3) and am inable to access my other hard drive from it. I set up grub so that I could boot either Windows or Fedora and that works fine (windows is on my 160gb maxtor and linux is on my 10gb western digital). I would like to be able to open stuff on my windows drive, (and saving to it would be nice too, but not necessary) such as music, images, etc. How could I do this? The only sign of the drive's existance in Fedora is in the hardware browser, not in the list of devices.
job done, assuming that windows is on the first partition of the primary master drive, and /mnt/windows is an existing empty directory. you'll be able to write to fat32 partitions, but NOT ntfs partitions. it's normally recommended to keep a second windows partitino for data on fat32 if the main os is on ntfs. someone will probably say that you actually can write to ntfs, but only in the same way that you can jump out of a plane, free-fall 3,000ft and land on a bouncy castle.
Well, first I tried it and it said, "mount point /mnt/windows does not exist," so I created a folder in mnt called windows. I tried it again and it informed me that, "fs type ntfs not supported by kernel." Is there any way to add ntfs support or should I give up on it?
