Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I installed kernel-ntfs####
and created the mount point. I can see the files in /mnt/XP/music but neither xmms, nor rythmbox able to see even the folder music in /mnt/XP.
I have also tried the change permissions for the XP dir but it says read only file system.
I'm open to ideas...
There is no such a thing as stupid question in journey of learning godzilla_roar, at lease in my book.
Most stupid question is the one you have never asked.
I should have been more specific. Here are the packages I installed:
Processor = Amd athlon 1900
Platform = Fedora Core 2
Latest stable kernel (can't remember the version right now and I'm not home, but it's the one after 2.6.5-1.358)
xmms-mp3 package for xmms
gstreamer-plugins-mp3 package for rhythmbox
ntfs rpm 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 for i686 (should i have installed 586 version?)
should i install ntfs kernel module as well?
For those who are interested:
Well, it was a simple detail but took one day to figure it out.
Oliv' was right. This command works:
but only when i run it as root.
So there is access to this folder. now i have a new question, since i am not able to change the permission on this folder from within fedora, how can i run xmms with my userid ?
