dual boot permissions on slackware 10.1


im setting up my desktop so i can dual boot windows and slackware.

done.

but, here's the biggie, i want to be able to access my windows partition which i named /winblowz . i can reach it pretty much ok being root.

but, nobody likes being root all the time. i got lots of mp3's and videos there, what should i do?

please help a newbie.

/dev/hda6 /mnt/data vfat umask=000 0 0


Assume your partition is /dev/hda6 and the filesystem is vfat. Put that line on /etc/fstab.

thanx a lot! another question though. i was looking up at the kernel when it boots and it gives me a warning about a ntfs file system... yeah i know its windows, but, here's my question, can i write into that directory? i saw the (r,w) thing... or is it not possible because its another filesystem.
