Not sure what Oracle has to do with NTFS.....

If you want to mount a file system, try "mount -t ntfs <device name> <mount point>". If your device is /dev/sda1 and you want it mounted under /mnt/ntfs (be sure the mount point exists first..it's just a directory), you'd do "mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/ntfs".

Read the man page on the mount command.

Cool

Note that "mount -t ntfs <device name> <mount point>" will mount the ntfs partition as read-only. If you want it mounted in read-write mode, check if you have "ntfs-3g" and then you would be able to mount it in any of the following two ways:

Code:
mount -t ntfs-3g <device name> <mount point>
or
Code:
ntfs-3g <device name> <mount point>
My $0.02

Good point...it's been so long since I've dealt with Windows and its associated things, I forget.
