Unhappy Mount Problem


Hi to all Linux users over there

I have two hard disk in my computer. In the one i have istall Windows XP greek edition which is my master and is devide in two partitions and in the other Linux Mandrake 8.1. The 1st partiotion is FAT32 files system and the other (with my mp3) in NTFS. Linux in /mnt/windows show the one partion in FAT32. I mount the other partion in windows2 directory (/mount -t ntfs /dev/hda5 /mnt/windows2) and i can see alla the folder of this partion except greek named directories. How can i make linux see this directories ?

Also how can i play mp3s in linux which they are named with greek name?

You can simply "upgrade" instead of reinstalling. In X put the install CD in. Open up the /mnt/cdrom/Mandrake/RPMS/ directory and find the (if you use KDE) Kde-GR package. Have Software Manager install it, and that should be it.? I think?

goto /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig

goto menu FileSystems => Native Language Support, and choose your characters
