Question How to automatically mount ntfs partition?


Should I add this to my /etc/fstab file:
/dev/hda2 /WinXP ntfs
??? What should be in <options>, <dump> and <pass> sections or should they be empty?

options, set to "default", or a umask to allow everyone to read the data, e.g. "umask=222", ignore the numbers, (or set them to 0)

I added umask=222 and winxp mounts but I can't read it with normal user only root can read it. Should I add umask=000 or what?

Search the forum. I've mentioned the /etc/fstab line many times. It's there somewhere.
