I'm using Mandrake 10 and my windows partion is FAT.

KDE automatically shows (mounts) the windows partion and I can copy any of the files. I even accidentally opened a file, instead of copying it first, from Open Office but, as an earlier poster suggested, this is not a good a good idea

This is what i'm getting.. What's wrong?

Code:
root@home:/home/matt# mount /dev/hda1 /windows -t ntfs
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
       or too many mounted file systems

Redhat 9 actually doesnt support it!!!

According to RedHat, it's kernel acutally doesnt include anything to mount an NTFS file system due to concerns with read write access.

Please read this link for more info:

I had the same trouble with red hat but Mandrake 9.1 does it automatically when you install it for you!!!

If you can't mount an ntfs partition because it's not in the kernel, try "modprobe ntfs" or something similar, then try it. That should give you ntfs support (read-only, of course) as a module.

open /etc/fstab as root and the fellowing line:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat noauto,user 0 0
remember to swich /dev/hda1 with the right partition or harddisk. Also remember to create the /mnt/windows dir.
Now you can (u)mount the drive with: (u)mount /mnt/windows

Have you created a mount point? (for example: "/mnt/windows" or "/media/windows")
# mkdir /mount-point
If the mount destination don't exist you can't mount the file system

yes you can... try to fined : kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.9-1.667smp-2.1.20-0.rr.3.3.i686.rpm (that is for Fedora Core 3) but search for kernel-module-ntfs and you will find it...
So after installing it you will be able to monut ntfs like you did with fat32(/etc/fstab.... )the problem is you will not be able to write on ntfs from linux. You only will be able to copy. I think yoy should give access 777 (chmod 777) to the mount point, but I'm not shure). I had not tried.
Good luck.

the kernel says that ntfs is not supported, but the help files of Red Hat 9 say that it IS supported.
I'm not using Red Hat 9 anymore, I installed Slackware and it works fine now. I was a real newbie at the time I wrote it, and I know now that

# modprobe ntfs

could be a solution. If not, download the latest ntfs package, configure, make, make install, modprobe ntfs, mount.

Thanks for this tip!

How would I set it up to automatically mount whenever I boot up?

cheers

Put it in your rc.* scripts (located in /etc/rc.d/) or the scripts in init.d (but I have Slackware, so I don't have that directory). You have to be root to be able to edit those. Maybe mount can be used too, but I'm not sure how. If you can do it through mount instead of smbmount, you could even put those things in fstab. Otherwise, I'd choose to add a few lines to rc.local.
