This is how it startet. I wanted to view my partition with linux, BUT, I wanted my user
account to also mount these directories. So I when to linuxconf, clicked on local
filesystems, clicked on add, wrote down "/dev/hda1" , "vfat", "/mnt/c:drive" in
the empty tabs. Then I went to the options tab and click on "user mountable" and "Not
mountable at boot time" (so it wont mount the partition). Accepted everything, restarted
computer, and boom "FAT32 STILL IN ALPHA". And when this happens, linux wont continue finish checking, it will just stay at one point with that message, so then I have to refomat the linux partition. And I done this about 5 times
, I really can't figure it out.
Here are my FSTABS
/dev/hda5 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda6 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda7 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
These are the tables after a clean reformat.
Here is my Partition Scheme
Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 5005 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 1489 11960361 c Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda2 1490 5005 28242270 f Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5 1490 1987 4000153+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda6 1988 1989 16033+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda7 1990 2002 104391 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda8 2003 5005 24121566 b Win95 FAT32
btw, I am using windows xp if that helps.
Please help anyone, I'm desperate.
