okey dokey hang on. i've been scouring google and it looks like others have seen this happen.

what i found so far:

Quote:
You could try issuing a "modprobe ntfs" before mounting. That works for here
running Slackware, but not I'm sure about RedHat.



You may also want to "cat /proc/filesystems" before and after to see if NTFS
support was really loaded.

well hold off on that. try my above post. if you do end up converting your windows partition to fat32, you don't have to do anything in linux to read those partitions. you can write to those partitions too. but you lose features of ntfs doing that.

ok thanks again

lol, the way i look at it is that if they stay ntfs they are useless anyways, so will linux automatically pick up the fat32, or do i gotta do somethin similar to the above?

also it could be that you said you were running rh 9.1 ? it could be that. it could be that there isn't ntfs support yet for rh 9.1.

ummm

i ran the first one u gave and it was not found, assuming it's just a mandrake command. the second gave this::

nodev rootfs
nodev bdev
nodev proc
nodev sockfs
nodev tmpfs
nodev shm
nodev pipefs
ext2
nodev ramfs
iso9660
nodev devpts
ext3
nodev usbdevfs
nodev usbfs
nodev autofs
ntfs


so ntfs is listed

no in linux, all you have to do is change the lines in /etc/fstab that have ntfs. change ntfs to vfat.

/dev/hda2 /winpar/winH vfat auto,owner,umask=0000,exec,rw 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /winpar/winI vfat auto,owner,umask=0000,exec,rw 0 0

umask=0000 will allow every user to write to those partitions. if you don't want that, and only want your user to be able to write to your windows partitions, you can use these lines instead:

/dev/hda2 /winpar/winH vfat auto,owner,gid=your_user_name,umask=0002,exec,rw 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /winpar/winI vfat auto,owner,gid=your_user_name,umask=0002,exec,rw 0 0

where your_user_name is your regular user's account's log in name.

you could try to load the module. as root (su):

insmod -o ntfs
