As I'm posting in this forum, I'm not only new to Linux, but also new to LinuxQuestions.org. I must say that what I've read through, searching these forums, has cleared up quite a bit, but I'm still foggy on this point...
I am running a dual-boot box with WinXP/RH 7.3, and it works fine (much to my surprise, after installing it!). I have searched through numerous threads on this board concerning mounting Windows drives, but I just don't seem to understand the method of doing it.
I've seen things along the lines of:
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c NTFS
I guess what I need is a guide on the MOUNT command... the one in the man pages didn't seem to help, since it wasn't exactly an explanation, more of a programmer-esque reference.
So... here's some questions:
1. How do I find out which partition it is that I need to mount? I have four: WinXP NTFS, One for Data which is FAT32, Linux, and Linux swap. I want the Data FAT32 partition to be accessable by Linux, and mounted.
Would that be mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/win_data FAT32 or something similar?
2. What are the options that can be used with the command?
3. Does anyone know the exact syntax I would use to mount the drive I specified in #1?
I know this was long-winded, but I'm a mind that HAS to know how things work, not just that they work. Thanks in advance to any replies!
