unseen partitions???


hi,

i have both mandrake 9.1 and redhat 9.0 installed in my system.

in mandrake 9.1, all i can see are my fat32 partitions. i cannot see my ntfs partition for win xp pro and the other ext3 partition for redhat 9.0.

on the other hand, during my redhat 9.0 session, all i can see is my redhat partition. i cannot see any other partition besides that.

is there a solution or a setting to be changed for both linux's so that i can see all my hard drive partitions?

thanks

can you clarify "see" a bit better... what are you actually doing? if "fdisk -l" lists them then you can definitely "see" them fine. for *nix partitions at least, you'd need ntfs compiled into your kernel for that partition.

/etc/fstab

The file /etc/fstab is where you describe all of the partitions that you want mounted at boot.

If you have already tried configuring /etc/fstab for both Mandrake and Red Hat then please post them. That will give us a starting point to diagnose your problem.

OK, here is a brief breakdown of the /etc/fstab by column.

Code:
device          mount_point     type    options      dump
/dev/hda1       /mnt/windows    vfat    defaults     0 0
/dev/hda2       /boot           ext3    defaults     1 2

And so on...
You can copy the /dev/hdxx lines from the fstab of Mandrake into the fstab of RedHat and visa versa.
Just make sure the mount points do not conflict with each other.

If you are still unsure about fstab, post your Mandrake and RedHat fstab and your partition table information. ( use fdisk -l ).
