Angry NTFS and me


Hello people

I am trying to get red hat 9 to recognize my second hard disk which has windows NT and NTFS partition.


fdisk gave this information

Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80060424192 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9733 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 14 9668 77553787+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 9669 9733 522112+ 82 Linux swap

Disk /dev/hdb: 82.3 GB, 82348277760 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 10011 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 * 1 255 2048256 6 FAT16
/dev/hdb2 256 10011 78365070 f Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hdb5 256 510 2048256 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hdb6 511 10011 76316751 7 HPFS/NTFS

kernel is 2.4.20-8 and i did download the rpm for addon of NTFS from linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net

i have verified under /proc/filesystems and now NTFS is recognised, however, it is not taking the mounting command and at system bootup i have noticed that the NTFS is not known and only after /sbin/modprobe it works, but again it does not take the mount command as shown on the website.
Please help

What mount command are you using? Ex:
mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb6 /mnt/hd -o ro

Tried this command
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r -o umask=0222

however it did not do the trick and mount command is not valid.
I am trying this from the root login.

I guess the first command to help me on the way should be a way to temporary access the hard disk and if that works, then i guess modification to that command can be added to /etc/fstab.

Another question is, if the hard disk is seen by the hardware browser, shouldn't it automatically mount the ntfs filesystem now that an rpm has been added to the kernel?

additional info

a little progress has been made by putting in the command mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/hdb6 /mnt/windows and now i am able to mount the ntfs drive for the session.
i need help with making sure that the /proc/filesystem does not forget that ntfs is there as a filesystem and what should be the command line for the /etc/fstab to mount the ntfs partition at bootup.
