Alright, on my very happy 13th install of this OS this week. It seems to come up with a new way to need to eat a hole in my harddrive everytime I install it. This time it's almost like last time...
I try to access my windows files on the other partition, and come to find that the partition has no mount point! I already did this one today so I went and set up
/mnt/hda1 /winxp ntfs defaults 0 0
The last time I messed everything up, I figure it's because I set the mount point for the home directory, and effectively kicked my user out.
So I make a empty directory for windows to let me call wallpapers, and .inf and .sys files so I can get the the ndiswrapper project I started on this morning, and am 2 steps back from where I started!
This is all done in root. So all is good in the world, I reboot.
I log back in and find I can't access the windows file, because it's locked out by root! OH BOY! No problem, I'll just go and change my file permissions.
So, now I find myself here, I've got
and it's -R rwx coming out of my ears. I'm tired, and I feel like I've wasted my day, mainly because I have. I still can't access my new directory even though I did:
chown -hR [username] /windows
Then rebooted, it still refuses to let me in the folder... IDK, I really tried to get into this, I have school, and it's almost done. I can go waste my time on the cold war rewriting history and writing up my own profile. I'm really not a happy camper, and anyone who installs an OS twice a day for a week straight because they can't get it to do one simple thing would be in the same boat. Sure there's tons of information out there, but none of it can help me. Water water everywhere, but not a damn drop to drink...
