suse linux doesnt see this partitions on my master drive ...
with file:/windows i should see these partitions, right?
what can i do?
sorry, my english is bad hope u all understand my problem
It's possible that your Windows partition isn't mounted, bu there is something weird in 9.1 - there is no fstab entry for the Windows partition, neither does it show up using 'mount' as it used to in previous versions. But it is there!
If you use KDE, there should be a "My Compter" icon on the Desktop, under which you should find the Windows partition. See if you can access your files through this way rather than specifying the URI manually.
Read through the man page for the 'mount' command.
You can add a 'uid=<username>' option to the /etc/fstab entry. This will change the ownership of the fat32 partition.
If it were an ext3 partition, you would use the chown command on the mounted partition, however, since the fat32 system doesn't have the same permissions built into the filesystem, the owner and group permissions for the partition are located in the /etc/fstab.
