When you are in Windows, copy your files on the FAT partition (in this case z: )
When you are in Linux, you will need to mount that partition.
If it is not already mounted when the system boots, you will need to create it.
Open the /etc/fstab
file and you may see that partition is already configured.
If not, in order to set up auto-mounting, you will need to login as root. At the command line, type: su -
You need to create a directory. Type: mkdir /mnt/shared
To see your partition table in Linux, type: fdisk -l
Then, you can mount your windows (shared) partition by typing:
: Replace the X with the partition number obtain from the partition table.
mount -t vfat /dev/hdaX /mnt/shared
To un-mount the partition, type:
You can also mount the partition automatically by adding it to the /etc/fstab
The line should look something like this:
/dev/hdaX /mnt/shared vfat defaults,users,umask=0111 0 0
