If you want read/write access to your Windows partitions/drive, use the ntfs-3g
command as root. It is pre-installed in OpenSuse 11.1, so that you can simply do:
ntfs-3g /dev/something /mnt
where /dev/something is the correct device name corresponding to the Windows partitions/drives. You can look at the output of fdisk -l
to see which device name have been assigned to those partitions (post the output here if in doubt). The command above will mount the partition under the /mnt directory. If you want to mount multiple partitions at the same time, you can create different mount points, for example:
mkdir /mnt/windowsC /mnt/windowsD
then mount each partition under a different mount point, for example
ntfs-3g /dev/something1 /mnt/windowsC
ntfs-3g /dev/something2 /mnt/windowsD
To unmount them just use the command umount
specifying either the name of the device or the name of the mount point as argument.
If you want these partitions to be mounted at boot time, you have to add the proper entries in /etc/fstab. Moreover, there is a chance that OpenSuse check for Windows partitions at boot. To check this, click the "My Computer" icon on the Desktop and in the "Disk Information" section look for the Windows partition. If they are there, you can simply right-click on them and select "Mount".
