recoving my old windows hdd into linux?


i just recently moved over from winxp, and have a few hdd on there i want to be able to access via redhat.

my mate told me i should change /etc/fstab but frankly, i have no idea what to add or delete or modify in that file?

Hi,

That's not enough information to tell you exactly what to do. In general, for each disk you want to access from linux you have to add a line to /etc/fstab with the following entries.

device_name mount_point filesystem_type mount_options 0 2

Have a look at "man fstab" and "man mount". Also the LDP webpages have something worth reading.
