Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Don't do anything yet. Just run that "fdisk -l" to list the harddisk setup for us. Not sure if you have to run "su" and give your root password first.
Then we'll see what you have actually created on that harddrive. We can then work out what your /etc/fstab file should look like.
You might also run "swapoff -a" as root, so that Linux don't try to write to the swap partition, in case its the wrong one you have in your current fstab. Just don't run too many programs at the same time after you have done that. Linux will kill (end) some programs by itself if it runs out of memory while you haven't got swap.
Edit: At least we know you have your windows C drive on /media/hd
problem solved...it was partitioning problem...the swap was taking the 35 GB...i've deleted this partition and the other 400 MB partition and then created a 500 MB swap partition and the rest became as D: (i've mounted it as /media/hd2 as the c: is /media/hd) and now i can c all partitions from linux...
thank u all so much for help..and b ready for more hhhh...thanx
Dude, thats because you do not have the right permissions to view! Can't you see the files even as root? You can just do one thing, in your /etc/fstab file, for those Windows drives, just remove 'defaults' and put this:
Just specify user id and group id along with umask. For example, if the user's id is 1000 and his group id is 1000:
You'll also need to install and specify ntfs-3g if you need to write to ntfs.
