NTFS on Redhat 9


I installed red hat 9 Shrike on a 20gb hard drive.

To be sure the install didnt mess with any of my back ups i unplugged both my 30gb and my 80gb hard drives which are NTFS formated with a lot of stuff on them.

I plugged them back into the computer and now i have to figure out how to get to the information that is on the hard drives. I can see both the NTFS hard drive on the Hardware browser. But how do i get to the info and be able to use it all. I have 40gb of mp3s on one hard drive which i would really like to use.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

System specs incase needed are:

3000+ Barton 400fsb
Soyo Dragon Plus KT600
1gb Crucial DDR PC3200
ATi Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb
Lite-On 52x Burner
20gb 5200rpm 2mb Cache LINUX
30gb 7200rpm 2mb Cache NTFS BACKUP HARD DRIVE
80gb 7200rpm 2mb Cache NTFS BACKUP HARD DRIVE


Thanks again

NTFS reading is still in it's infancy and writing to NTFS is something wich os not recommended as it can result in data loss. Depending on how much information you need to transfer, have you considered a shared fat32 partition? Both Windows and Linux can access it.

Otherwise, there are a few programs available for Windows to see and write to Linux and for Linux to access NTFS, but they all come with the proviso "use at your own risk" - and that's from the program authors.

Well, i converted my 30gb with partition magic to see what would happen..It is now a FAT32 partition. Now how would i mount that hard drive. or be able to look at its contents.

Thanks again

Yep, NTFS reading in Linux is in fact fine - it's just writing where it can be very dodgy.
