the line in /etc/fstab that allows me to easily mount the windows partition:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/washu ntfs noauto,owner,users,ro,umask=0222,iocharset=utf8 0 0"
where do i type all this?
and do i type it exactly like that?
once i get my hard drives mounted i can start messing with stuff and read the stuff i got. i have quite a bit of stuff but i dont want to burn it all on cds.
the question is quite well answered in http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=111041

for your winxp, go here and download/install the ntfs drivers matching your version of redhat and the kernel version your running.
is windows xp on the first partition of your hard drive? i'm going to assume it is. open up a shell terminal. type these commands in order exactly as posted for mounting your windows partition (remember to install the ntfs driver rpm first!):
2. mkdir /mnt/c
3. kwrite /etc/fstab
now in fstab add this line:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/c ntfs auto,owner,ro, 0 0
save your changes
4. mount /dev/hda1
you may or may not have to create a desktop icon. depends. if you do use the device block label. in this example, it's /dev/hda1
if you're not using ntfs for you windows partition and are using fat32, skip the downloading and installing of the ntfs driver and proceed to the commands. in fstab, change ntfs to vfat
The only difference is that I use iocharset option. It's only necessary if you use non-english local characters or less usual characters in your file names on the ntfs partition.
And I agree with megaspaz, don't use multiple threads for the same questions.
