So if you manually navigate to /mnt as a normal user and click on the windows directory icon - what happens?

A few thoughts come to mind:

First, make sure your windows parition is really mounted.
Check with the "mount" command to make sure your
/dev/ha3 is mentioned.

Second, if you are trying to mount a Windows XP partition,
the filesystem type should be ntfs rather than vfat.

After you created /mnt/windows you need to do as root ->
# mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/windows to see it. And what type of filesystem is your Windoze part? What OS are you using?

It won't automatically mount it again until you restart your X window session. You can do this by Ctl + Alt + Backspace, then login again and do startx again. It should be there after all that.

Here's what my three Windoze parts I have in /etc/fstab look like ->
Code:
/dev/hda5        /WinE            vfat        users,umask=1000,rw,auto 0 0
/dev/hdb1        /WinD            vfat        users,umask=1000,rw,auto 0 0
/dev/hdb6        /AppSwap         vfat        users,umask=1000,rw,auto 0 0
I'm able to read and write as a normal user with Konqueror when I click on that Home icon on the desktop. There's nothing special to do, because this automounts them when you boot. Now, if you don't want them mounted like that, there's other steps. NB: I don't mount my Windoze OS partition, just 3 with Programs and Data. I also have them backed up, so if something happens it's not a problem.

Okay, then, you should be able to mount it just fine. Mine are all FAT32 and I have no problem on either of my comps mounting under Slack.

Where are you at with the problem now? Can you mount it and read/write to it? If not, could you post the results of
# fdisk -l (you gotta be root for this)
and
$ cat /etc/fstab (you can be a normal user for this)

You should have this ->
Code:
dev/hda3        /mnt/windows            vfat        users,umask=1000,rw,auto 0 0
if you want to read and write whilst in Slack, but if not, use this ->
Code:
/dev/hda3        /mnt/windows            vfat        users,umask=1000,ro,auto 0 0
which makes the feller read only. The difference being rw as read/write, or ro as read only. Either one allows everyone (users) on your Slack box to see it, and mounts it (auto) automatically.

See how easy *nix is once the esoteric documentation is sorted out? Beats the pants off of that Gates feller's OS. Heck, his little diddy can't see my *nix partitions no matter what he does! Ha! Ha! I kinda like that

That's why I suggested the fdisk -l output. Now, isn't it gratifying to fix your own problems in this wonderful Slack *nix OS?
