Thx for help
Which version of Mepis, you did not indicate?
Mepis 7 & 8 tis easy, since you are using a live CD:
Kmenu> System> File System> Kdiskfree and you should see the ntfs volume.
As in all Linux distros I have ever tried, you must mount the additional drives Linux or Microsoft to have a look about in the drive. Right click on the ntfs drive and left click on mount. If there are no errors on the drive it will mount, if there are errors on the drive follow the instructions...
Once the volume is mounted, right click on the drive and open, the drive will open in Konqueror.
