first ....sorry my english is very bad, since it isn't my native.
I use SB Audigy too, u can turn on the digital output from the volume control, right click ur mouse on the panel and choose " add to panel --->> multimedia and click the volume control ", right click on the volume control icon again choose " run volume control " and turn the " dig1 " all way up.
In redhat 9 if u play CD from gnome-cd ( KS-CD, XMMS also ), u'll get no sound, but if u do have a CD-ROM which comes with the SPDIF cable, u can plug it one end to the CD-ROM and another to Audigy SPDIF input ( see the audigy manual ), and then ....enjoy ur music. U can use " vol " and "dig1" to control the volume, use " PCM" instead when u watch movie with XINE or Mplayer.
For showing ur NTFS drive u must have kernel-ntfs installed pick the right one here http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html
( choose the RIGHT one !!! )
kernel-ntfs installation :
open a terminal
as root type :
#rpm -ivh kernelfile
U have to make a directory first in /mnt to mount ur ntfs partition, do it as follow :
as root :
#mkdir /mnt/windows ( change "windows" with other name u like )
to mount ur partition type :
#mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows .. assuming that ur ntfs partition is in hda1
to access the windows partition issue a command like :
u can mount the ntfs automatically by editing ur fstab file :
add something like
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs auto,user,ro 0 0
u still can't view the contents of ur ntfs partition, u must have the right permission, see mount and fstab manual for details !!!
hope it helps.... !!
