RAID Windows Partition


I have 6 500GB HDs, 1 With Windows XP, 1 With Linux (Fedora 10) and 4 in RAID0 with Vista.
My question concern the Stripe with 4 HDs.
Here is it:
*** Active Set
name : nvidia_ddfchifg
size : 3907092480
stride : 128
type : stripe
status : ok
subsets: 0
devs : 4
spares : 0



this are the devices:
/dev/sdd: 976773168 total, "WD-WCAS85192994"
/dev/sdc: 976773168 total, "WD-WCAS85164579"
/dev/sdb: 976773168 total, "WD-WCAS85186983"
/dev/sda: 976773168 total, "WD-WCAS85193057"



I want to acess files from my Vista Partition...so how do I mount my Vista Partition in Linux ? Someone told me that I just need to load the device-mapper module in kernel but I have no idea how to do that.

I must say, my english is terrible and the first time I used Linux was 2 days ago....so Im REALLY REALLY noob at it.

Thanks.

You don't have to. If you see what you're seeing,

you're already using dmraid. dmraid creates a device with a name like
/dev/mapper/nvidia_ddfchifg1 (assuming one partition, number 1) which you can mount with something like
Code:
mount -o ro -t ntfs /dev/mapper/nvidia_ddfchifg1 /mnt
assuming you want read only ntfs

The location of the dev/mapper/nvidia_ddfchifg1 might be slightly different in fedora.

Thanks for the help, it worked.
I did (as root):

mkdir mnt/windows
mount -t ntfs /dev/mapper/nvidia_ddchifg1 /mnt/windows

I really appreciated your help.
