how to copy windows files datas into linux

how to mount windows partion in linux
download and install fuse, fuse-ntfs-3g package.
After that you can mount ntfs partitions
In Gnome open the
"Configure Your Computer" menu
then " Import Windows Documents and Settings" : This takes you to a Wizard.
open a terminal
#yum install fuse
#yum install fuse-ntfs-3g
#mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt (sda1 is normally the partition on which windows is installed)
#cd /mnt (Now you are in the windows partition)
#ls will show the directories and files you can cp mv do whatever
Hope this helps.
You need the filesystem modules in the kernel for the windows partitions.
With the filesystem modules the partitions are mounted and read just like any other disk.
One module handles the older windows filesystems.
DOS16/DOS32 V?? (I can no longer remember those names)
Another module handles NTFS
I installed the NTFS module and read a windows disk in about 8 minutes, including time to recompile and re-install Linux (But I have Linux source already installed and had compiled a few times before).
I have read DOS and Win98 disks for years without any extra programs.
Have never had to use FUSE.
You can use the DOSTOOLS package programs for some access. It was meant for floppies.
These are all on the installation disks for Slackware and I suppose for other distributions as well. The latest Slackware also included FUSE too.
