Fstab Entry To Mount Vista


I am having trouble reading Vista files in Fedora Core 5. Can anyone help with this? The whole line /dev/sda5 in /ect/fstab/ looks wrong. It also shows as error in boot up.

ntfs

If windows vista is using ntfs (dunno, mine won't install on any of my computers lol) then you should mount it like sda1. Make sure your mount point folders exist. (in the case of your fstab /windows/D

Note the typo; might that typo exist in the real fstab file?

Thanks Hern. I found the problem. The folders did exist. sda1 is for XP. I was checking the mount point closer and found the default entry was misspelled. Now it looks like this and mounts.

Yes, I found the typo after creating the post. I don't know why I didn't see it before. Thank you,

Bob
