please let me know.
Assuming you are using NTFS with XP - you need to create a mount point in Red HAT's /mnt directory
Open a terminal
Put an entry at the bottom of your /etc/fstab file on a new line - (just substitute in your Partition, Mount point and User ID Number ( uid ) in place of my example ones)
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs auto,ro,umask=222,uid=501 0 0
You can get your User ID Number by opening a terminal and typing:
id username – (substitute username with whatever your username is)
Look for the
This is your user id number.
( Red Hat currently doesn’t include a NTFS driver because of uncertainties surrounding the legal status of the driver)
So - to READ
a NTFS partition from Red Hat, you can either:
- Download and install an RPM – or
- Compile your kernel
Your best just getting the relevant RPM - Check out this site for an RPM
(Never try and write to NTFS currently - there's a fair chance you'll corrupt the filesystem)
