Ok, I an trying out Ubuntu linux, and so far it seems really nice.
However, it did not mount my windows drive automatically. I have added a line in my fstab and it is now mounting, but i can't access it as it is owned by 'root' when mounted.
Ubuntu is kind of wierd as there is no root user in the sense that you can log in as root, but i can get a root terminal from a normal user session.
My fstab is this, /dev/hdb1 is the windows drive:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows ntfs defaults 0 2
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
I'm not sure which options i need to change to get it to be ro but by all users.
As it is now, when booting and mounting it, i see it go by as 'rw' when it mounts the ntfs drive, which would be bad because rw on ntfs isn't supported yet, correct?
