Mounting NTFS/FAT32 partition in RHEL 5.8
I have FAT32 and NTFS partitions on the same hard disk where RHEL 5.8 is installed. How can I mount and work with these partitions? ntfs-3g
package is installed.
Looking for the answer, I found the way to find such partition using Hardware Manager, but cannot find in in the menu. Also, somebody recommended to use cfdisk command, but it is also not available.

1. try

fdisk -l
lowercase L switch there and post results.

2. At the cmd line as root user it would be something like

# make dir to mount it to
mkdir /mnt/ntfs

# mount it; assuming dev is /dev/sdb1
# amend as reqd
mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ntfs
