Mounting


Okay, I'm thinking of installing Red Hat 9 (after my loss of Mandrake 9.1 a few minutes ago, read my topic about swap space =b) Anyways... The last time I tried Red Hat, I know one thing I didn't like about it was that it did not mount all my other drives for me like Mandrake. If I were to install Red Hat 9, how would I mount my windows drives? (Please explain in the most simple way =b, I am just coming from Mandrake, therefor I am a big )

This is from some notes I made while installing RedHat AS 2.1. My windows server is named office

1) edit hosts file to include name of windows system you need to mount. I had to do this because my windows system was not in a DNS.

2) make a directory for the mount point. i.e. /office

3) use this command to mount to a server called office and a share called c
mount t smbfs o username=username,password=password //office/c /office

4) access the windows share via /office

Hope this works for you on RH9

Question Writing

Okay... I can access my Fat32 drive now, but I cannot write to it from Red Hat. Can someone please tell me how to mount it so that it will write as well?

in your fstab file add the options: user,exec,gid=users,fmask=0777,dmask=0777. I'm assuming it's a local drive and not a network drive.

Where?

Where do I add that?

/dev/hda6 /mnt/win_c vfat defaults 0 0

That's how it is now; where in there do I need to add those options?

You could try this : you'll need to substitute in your user id number in place of the example one - to get your user id number open a terminal, su to root user then,

id username

look for the uid=xxx - thats your user id number

/dev/hda6 /mnt/win_c vfat umask=000,uid=501,auto 0 0
