ok, i read the manual, i followede the manual, and it still won't work.
i have RH9, a clean install. and the following disk setup:
hda5 fat32 (windows e
hda6 linux swap
hda2 fat32 (windows c
hda4 ext3 (linux root)
hda3 ext3 (linux boot)
hdb1 fat32 (windows d
i can mount all of these disks manually, but i can't seem to get them to mount automaticly.
following the manual i added the following lines to /etc/fstab:
-t /dev/hdb1 /mnt/d vfat auto,umask=0 0 0
-t /dev/hda5 /mnt/e vfat auto,umask=0 0 0
-t /dev/hda2 /mnt/c vfat auto,umask=0 0 0
i already tried removing the -t.
any help with this would be higly appreciated, but i only have experience with linux using knoppix for about 2 hours, so your going to have to treat me like an idiot. i already used knoppix to verify the status pf the windows drives, and in knoppix, i can acces them fine. i can also manually mount these drives, but i can't get them to mount on startup.
