well ...

actually ... my questions was the opposite ...

i know u cant read ext2 FS from win
but u CAN read fat 32 from linux ... but the drive isnt in /dev/windows as it was in suse ...

not mounting errors ... when it boots ... it checks hda ... (does that means mounting while booting...?) ... then errors me ...

sorry about that, i read it wrong the first time and went back to edit it..
well it shouldn't be /dev/windows but more like /dev/hdaX , then you mount it to some empty directory like /mnt/windows

let us know..

oky doky

alright ... when booting ...

i get

"check hda
timeout waiting for dma"

also ...

bringing up interfae eth0
determining ip for eth0 ... failed ...
another eventual problem ...
that probably be netconfig ... when ill actually have default mask and such ...
