accessing windows partition in linux...
Hi I am running a duel booted winblows XP / Redhat system and I can't seem to burn cd's properly in redhat, though in windows nero runs w/o a hitch. I've already posted a thread on that issue and done plenty of trouble shooting but I can't get it to work... I am recording music and want to put it on to CD. How do I access my windows partition in linux so that I can copy my .wav audio files to my windows hdd so I can burn my music onto cd's that way?

You search these forums for that topic because it gets asked hundreds of times a week and I'm buggered if I'm saving your lazy ass time by posting the answer for you.

I know that your supposed to re-compile your kernel so that it can use NTFS. (which mine won't recompile for some reason) but i also know that it only provides a read-only usage and I need to actually write to the windows partition.

Komakino, please stop using that language. If you don't want to answer a question, simply don't do it. Don't post such comments instead.

fatherg, write access to NTFS partitions is highly experimental. It means it may destroy the files or the whole partition. When recompiling your kernel you have such an option, but don't check it unless you're a kernel developer (at least for now). The current situation is that the best idea is to have a FAT32 partition for that cases, so you can use from both systems.
