This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

hi can you help me just installed suse9.1 after i did an clean xp reinstall and
i have everything working it seems in both systems. I knew that i would need a partition to swap files between the two systems so i have set out the following partitons:
main portion of hd is ntfs 99gb~
- extended 16gb~
10gb~ reiser suse
5gb fat 32 (the partiton that needs to be writeable by both systems)
the problem is that i can't find the ntfs partion and view it's files and i have set up the mount point of the fat32 as /mnt/hda5 but this is read only. so if you could help me i would be grateful.
windows xp /Suse 9.1
gurb boot manager
2500+ amd athalon
114 samsung hd (120 unformated)
need any more info i will be happy to supply it.
You could help us by posting your /etc/fstab (contains information on how to mount drives) and the output of 'fdisk -l', which shows all partitions that are being recognised. For the later command you need to be root.
In general: you may need to set the option umask=002 or umask=000 in /etc/fstab to get write access on fat32 partitions, since fat32 cannot deal with Linux/Unix permissions.
ok here is all the data from that command thanks for the command to make the fat 32 drive writeable worked perfectly
