File sharing


this is just one of those questions that you guys probly want to smack me for but, okay.. Anywho, I wanted to know how to be able to feed files through linux while i'm on XP, or vise versa. I tried it a lot while i was on redhat8 (oh i'm using a dual boot *lilo* to be exact) I was thinking that i have to mount the drive that DOS Is on, and go through teh procedure there, something like

mount = /mnt/hda1
Or something similar to that, I'm just not sure right now.

yeah that's possible, but only to read them, not write as it's too dangerous.

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/ntfs

might need to "modprobe ntfs" if your kernel doens'[t have ntfs in the kernel. search this site for a lot of info about mount ntfs drives
