Question Help?


Is anyone online who might be bored and willing to answer a few questions through an IM program? I'm going to dl one now, and I have a few questions that I can't seem to find answers for in the documentation I've got.

Thanks!

Sadie

Thanks. Didn't want to take up board space with more questions which - I'm fairly certain - other people have already asked. I'm just not finding the answers in any of the Mandrake docs, or the KDE docs. *sigh*

First of all, and most importantly - is there a way for me to access the NTFS partition on my hard drive from Mandrake? I don't care about running apps, I just want to move data from it onto a CD so that I don't lose it.

If I can't do it residently, is there an emulator or something which would allow me to do it?

Thanks a bunch!

I don't know if Mandrake has NTFS read-only support by default. If not you need to look at compiling a new kernel. If it has you can mount the ntfs partition with something like mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/hda1 /mnt/win where /mnt/win must be an existing directory and /dev/hda1 should be changed to what the ntfs partition actually is.

That's why these forums exist, to post questions on. If for some reason you can't find your question answered by searching, just post your question stating you couldn't find the answer you were looking for. Its as easy as that.
