Permission Suse 10.0


Would someone be kind enough to give me a little help? plz .. :-)

I built this dual boot box. XP / Suse 10.0
Xp and Suse are on separate 80 gig hard drives. ( XP hda / Suse hdb )
I have a 200 gig drive that is split into two partitions. One partition is for XP (hde1) and the other is for Suse. (hde2)

From Suse I can read the XP back up drive partition. ( hde1 )
From suse I can not get permission to add anything to the Suse back up drive partition ( hde2 ).

Now for the hart of the matter:
I know nothing about Linux.

I've screwed around with the “User Management” section of Yast for a few days now and have had no luck at all.

I forgot to mention:
It was originally an XP box on one 80 gig drive. ( hda ).
Two months ago I added Suse 10.0 with another 80 gig drive. (hdb ) and the 200 gig back up drive split into two partitions, hde1 for XP and hde2 for Suse. All of the drives were mounted at the time of the Suse 10.0 installation.

Would some kind hearted soul please walk me through the path of enlightenment? ( In very simple terms )

Thanks

First, a little more information will greatly help us help you. Can you post the results of fdisk -l (that's L not 1) and the contents of /etc/fstab? The first command tells all your hard drives, partitions, and filesystem types. The second is the file that controls how those partitions are mounted at boot time.

I'm afraid that I don't what that stuff is or where to get it.

Sorry, from a command line (probably a little icon on your system tray that looks like a black computer monitor). You type those commands at a command prompt (called a terminal or console). You should also be able to find it somewhere in your start menu under "shells", I believe. Once you open the terminal, type fdisk -l. Copy and paste the output from the screen here.

You can get /etc/fstab by using the file manager (I'm guessing you use Konqueror). Just navigate up directories until you get to "/", then click on "/etc". Find the file fstab and copy and paste the contents here (it's just a text file).

I don't think mini commander is it. It is probably called "terminal" or "gnome-terminal". Mini commander sounds like an offshoot of midnight commander which is not a terminal. Look under Applications --> System Tools or something like that. (Sorry, I'm a KDE guy.)
