Well, as the title says, I have a few questions regarding mounting my NTFS partition.
I installed Mandrake 10 on /dev/hdb1
The primary HD I had installed at the time was divided into 3 fat32 drives and mandrake did the following:
-Made a mount point icon on the desktop called "harddisk" that was /mnt/hd and had nothing in it.
-Mounted /dev/hda1 hda2 & hda3 as win_c win_d win_e
These 3 as it would happen didnt work either. I then replaced the hda1 with my current XP install and booted into mandrake. It would not let me make anychanged to mounts in the Mandrake control center, it said it was in use or something.
I then edited /etc/fstab and made it look like the following:
/dev/hdb1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hdb6 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-15,sync,codepage=850 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb5 swap swap defaults 0 0
none /mnt/hd supermount dev=/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-15,kudzu,codepage=850 0 0
The /dev/hda1 now mounts perfect as a readonly NTFS as /mnt/windows . . .
are all still created and are empty!! how do i make them stop??
also since playing with the fstab file my icon on the desktop that says home now goes to /mnt/windows NOT to the home directory!!
Can anyone shed some light on what im doing wrong? I woudl like the hardisc icon to go to my /mnt/windows and the home icon to work as usual.
