Question Read write access on Debian


Greetings fellow Linux users

First a little history:
I installed Debian but I can not get into the gui because for some reason my v-card is not working on it, (it did on all the other distros) but any way what I am doing now is copping the XFree log file to windows directory so that I can post it here and find out what is wrong with my v-card.

At the prompt under root user I did this:

1. mkdir /mnt/win

2. mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/win

The problem:
Now I have the window files there but I can not send the file to it is read only how do I remedy this problem.


Thank you all

Hi,
Using the NTFS driver that comes with the kernel, NTFS write support is impossible (because the driver is still under development). You can, however use captive to write to your NTFS partition.

Usage: http://www.jankratochvil.net/project/captive/. Basically, captive uses your XP/2K/NT kernel driver (DLL), loads that up in Wine, interfaces it with the kernel, and lets you write to your NTFS drive using standard unix commands

Have fun!
