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.

This is local? You could 'fdisk -l' and look for an NTFS partition. As far as mounting, the defaults/auto gets it for me - 'mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/hd', though ymmv. Maybe 'mount -t ntfs blah blah' if it does.
ezra - You mean /dev, not /etc. Unless RH is weirder than I thought. longinus - And I meant Your Mileage May Vary (ymmv).
And as far as mounting it, I was incorrect - true, as far I recall, I didn't have to do anything special as root just to view the contents of the partition with NTFS-support built into the kernel but to mount it as a normal user or if you don't have NTFS support or for various other things can be more complicated. But let's just find the thing first.
Assuming you did have it recorded, ac1980's given some suggestions. Actually, if you did have it recorded and the mount point still exists, you'd just do 'mount /mnt/win' or whatever. So I assume you never actually had it configured or you've changed the arrangement?
I know the feeling - I noticed earlier that I told someone to use the '-t' option because I'm so used to using it to specify 'type' when '-F' was the option to specify FAT type for that particular tool.
well, if you have your 200g setup as your second drive then you would mount /dev/hdb1 to a mount point in /mnt/ such as winxp
once you create a folder in /mnt named winxp
from terminal you can 'mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/winxp
or if it is the first 'mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/winxp
I dont need any switches in my setup, but if you cannot mount this way, check out ' man mount
but, if i remember right, youll need to update your kernel via RPM from redhat for NTFS support. Also, to the best of my recollection, NTFS is not fully supported by the kernel as of yet. I would not recoomend writting to that drive under linux, open it read only. To transfer files from one to another, I would enable another partition formatted as fat 32 to share windows and linux files on. JMHO
