Unable to view Windows Partition in Linux
 
I have a problem,In my pc i do have two OS (Red Hat Linux6 and Windows XP).

I tried to mount the windows partition in Linux (Via fstab), but it throws error message as "Unknown file system NTFS".So i used file system as vfat.
But this time it throws another error message"Bad Magic Number".

I downloaded the fuse3G to make NTFS available to Linux,but it doesn't work at all, it again throws error as "Unknown file System type NTFS".

Could you please guide me if there is any way to mount the windows partition in Linux?

Code:

yum install ntfs-3g
You can't mount it as vfat because it's not a FAT partition, it's NTFS.

Thanks suicidaleggroll, i was trying it one way through mount it permanently (fstab)

but just now get download and run the command "ntfs-3g /dev/sda5 /media/d/" and it works well.

depending on your distro you can just use autofs and create a cifs mount point.

was my learning curve on autofs. love it now for accessing cifs mount points.

if you are trying to access a local partition from a dual boot system, you can still add an fstab entry.

partition_info mount_point file_type auto,stuff 0 0

is the basic for an fstab entry.
