I have an AMD Athlon 64 X2 dualcore processor on ASUS motherboard with two SATA HDDs. Both are Seagate, one is 80 GB and the other 160 GB.
The 80 GB HD has C: and D: partitions under windows XP (VFAT, and each 20 GB) and FEDORA 8 (the remaining space).
The 160 GB HD has F: and G: partitions under NTFS ( each 30 GB) and the rest is free space. The 80 GB HDD is the first-boot HDD with dual booting (GRUB).
When I go into linux and mount the C: or D: drives (SDA1 or SDA5 ), I get the output :
/dev/sda1 on /mnt type vfat (rw)
whereas, when I mount the F: or G: (SDB1 or SDB5), I get the output :
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt type fuseblk (rw, nosuid, nodev, noatime, allow_others, blksize=4096)
why does not the mount output for the NTFS partition say “type NTFS” but instead says “type fuseblk” ? Why is the “mount” output for the NTFS-partitioned HDD different from the VFAT-partitioned HDD and is this how it would be or is there something wrong ?
Thanks for any clarification/suggestion.
