mounting hard disk


I have a problem, when I try to mount my windows drives(debian-sarge):
Code:
mount -t VFAT /dev/hda0 /mnt/winc
It gives a"fs not supported by kernel" error. What do I need to do to fix it?
also, how can I chekc my kernel version?

Code:
uname -r
will give your kernel version.

Maybe you have vfat support as a module? Try
Code:
modprobe vfat
and then see if your hard drive can be mounted.

Okay, thanks everyone, I managed to get it working, BUT I seem to have another problem, when after I mount it, the only way I can access the mounted dir(/mnt/winc) for example, I get an "access denied" error, and the only way to access it is via the console with root. What do I need to modify for that not to happen?

You need to modify /etc/fstab Add a line for it in the fstab file:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/winc vfat auto,users,owner,exec,umask=000 0 0

You can then mount it as a regular user with the command:
Code:
mount /mnt/winc
