Hi everybody... Im pretty new in Linux, but I can already move some little step.
I read a lot on the internet, I spent hours and nights trying to configure my computer to work with linux as I want.
I changed various distros, but now I have the Mandrake 10.1
Im writing with it right now, after fighting with it to make my stupid winmodem ISDN work
BUT I DID IT!
OK, now my problem: I have two HDD always on my pc: one is inside (NTFS partitions, that linux see as: hdb1 and hdb5, but it contains only my files, no OS on it!) and one in a movable rack, because i have to change between linux and windows XP.
Before Mandrake 10.1 I installed Fedora Core 3, and after installing the downloadable package for reading NTFS, I could perfectly see my NTFS partitions (Im not interested in writing, just reading....)
Mandrake 10.1 does not seem to have any downloadable package for reading NTFS partitions... I cannot mount them!
I changed my fstab as follows:
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/Various NTFS users,owner,ro,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdb5 /mnt/Storage NTFS users,owner,ro,umask=000 0 0
I saved it, and I typed in console: mount -a
All i get is: mount: NTFS filesystem not supported by kernel.
I tried to compile a kernel with make xconfig, I said YES to read-only NTFS support, but I still have no positive news....
Does anybody know WTH is happening?
Please let me know a.s.a.p.!
Thanks a lot in advance
