what are the permission on the partitions, and what is the exact error produced.

can you create a directory while working in Linux, on your windows partition(s)? which parition, are you writing to when you get the error?

sounds like a permissions issue.

shukla_chanchal, your last 3 threads have had awful titles like this one. In your Deep Desire thread you expressed an interest in improving the site. One way is to use more descriptive titles.

When you submit a post, next to the title entry there is a paragraph:
Please try to be as descriptive as possible. A subject that accurately describes your problem will make your thread much more likely to get a quick response.

Bad: "Help Me!!" or "URGENT"
Good: "Why is my mouse pointer wrong?"
Best: "Mouse pointer distorted on XFree86 4.3 with Geforce FX 5200"
Please follow the instructions.
