Reading windows drive under Fedora 3


I just installed Fedora 3 and got all the updates but i cant seem to find the place to mount my Windows drive to drag files from it over to my Linux drive. My windows drive is my master -hda and my Linux is on my slave -hdb.

Hi!

does your Windows drive have a fat32 file system?

if yes, then:

mkdir /mnt/windows (for example)
mount -t vfat /dev/hda /mnt/windows

you can edit /etc/fstab to add an entry to mount at boot time the drive.

man mount for details.

I use WindowsXP Pro so its NTFS.

i tried mount -t ntfs /dev/hda /mnt/windows but it said
mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel
