I am guessing you have either enbedded or hardware raid, If that is the case then that won't matter since fedora will need to be able to read that for it's only partitions anyways. I am assuming c: is sda1 and d: is sda2, do you have the same problem mounting sda1 as you do sda2? also can you confirm that c: and d: aren't mirroring each other or raided in any form to each other?

But are they connected to each other in a raid 0 or not? I should not think so since they look to be different sizes... but worth checking. I do not know why you can't seem to mount these, their shouldn't be any reason you can't since the raid drivers must be installed in fedora for fedora to even work...

sure they are connected to each other.sda1 is the C and sda2 is the D.as i said before 2 SATA HD each one is 120 Gigs,connected as Raid 0 through the Mother Board and Operating Systems see the both HD as 1 240 Gigs HD.

That seems strange, it should not see sda and sdb as seperate if they are raided on a hardware or embedded level. I dunno what to suggest now =/.

According to the fdisk output, you have two 120Gb drives (sda and sdb) connected to your system. One of those (sda) contains three partitions, and an invalid partition table; the other (sdb) has no partitions on it.

I suspect that both the "invalid partition table" and the "empty partition table" are artifacts of the hardware hardware RAID controller you're using. I also suspect that the problem occurs because you're using an inappropriate device driver in your Fedora system which is not correctly accessing the RAID controller.

Have you looked for appropriate Linux hardware drivers that you could add to your Linux system? Note that GRUB may not be able to boot from a hardware RAID configuration, so you may need to boot from GRUB on a USB memory stick or similar device, and you'll probably need to create an Initial RAM Disk Image linking in the correct driver.

The Fedora 10 Installation Guide remarks:
Quote:
12.1.1. Hardware RAID

RAID, or Redundant Array of Independent Disks, allows a group, or array, of drives to act as a single device. Configure any RAID functions provided by the mainboard of your computer, or attached controller cards, before you begin the installation process. Each active RAID array appears as one drive within Fedora.

On systems with more than one hard drive you may configure Fedora to operate several of the drives as a Linux RAID array without requiring any additional hardware.
(Emphasis added.)

Since you are not seeing a single drive, clearly -- as you've told us -- your systems not working correctly.

If you want your NTFS drives automatically mounted when your Fedora system is booted, you can add the mounting instructions to /etc/fstab. Here, for example, are the NTFS mount lines from this laptop's Fedora /etc/fstab:
Code:
UUID=342D7D7923AC4107	/Vista			ntfs-3g	rw,defaults	0 0
UUID=2C88743C8874071C	/Vista/Recovery		ntfs-3g	rw,defaults	0 0
Note that the mount points (/Vista and /Vista/Recovery) are created with mkdir, and the UUID values are found by looking at the output of ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid. You can, of course, use LABEL= or the acutal pyhsical address to specify the device to mount. (I tend to avoid actual physical device identification since I sometimes change device locations, and want to have fstab independent of such fiddling.)
