Mounting NTFS partition so I can write on it


THe way Ive mounted it now, its read-only.

I have another question, Im trying to make my slackware net run ( wireless lan ) and Im having alotta problems. Does slackware 9.1 has some good internet configuration tool so I can make it work more easily ? Cause a kid next door that uses redhat 9 configured it for like 5 minutes using an X net configuration tool.

Thanks in advance

Writing to NTFS is difficult advandture, bcoz w2k check the partition for modification from previous shutdown.

Modification will be treated as dirty by w2k, so therefore it is not so easy to do that, if u still wonna do that, there is a HOWTO on /usr/doc/Linux-[mini]-HOWTO ..

The comman way to come over this is to have a fat32 partition for storing shared datas that u expect to access possibly modify either in window or linux ..

From window u can acctualy access the ext2fs by using gogling(explore2fs), writing is possible but also danger stuff ..

Dude- DO-NOT-WRITE-TO-NTFS!! Unless of course you enjoy reinstalling whatever OS you have on that partition as well as losing your data. Writing to NTFS with Linux is still very much in the experimental stage and is not recommended.

If you want to really share space with Windows, use FAT32 as linuxjaver said. --it is safe.

thank you for the fast replies. I will create a little Fat32 partition.
And what about the second question ?

Can't help you there. I used the command line, in 9.0, with hardwired DSL. Nothing like your situation. I can prb guess though, that there isn't any kind of pretty graphical comfiguration and you'll have to get in deeper than that

With Slackware, the easiest configuration tool is the command line...

If you're having problems, you may need to install a new module for your wireless card, from http://www.linux-wlan.org. My Slackware notebook has a Netgear MA401 prism2 chipset wireless pcmcia card, and I found that the Slackware default orinico module was buggy.

I installed the prism2 modules from linux-wlan.org and it's been perfect since.

You could always install explore2fs on the windows os, then you can pull files from the linux partition and linux can pull from the ntfs, so if you don't want it, you don't have to have an extra fat32 partition.
