if it is hooked up to the same computer, you don't need samba, see the helpful tips page of my guide on how to mount fat32 partitions and ntfs

Hey,

Mandrake 9.1 should mount your Windows harddrive automatically when you boot. (Unless you disabled it, which I doubt you did..) Just either open up Home, then go to /mnt directory and there should be a "windows" or "ntfs" or "C" folder in there that has you windows drive in it.. or you can open up a console and type:
cd /mnt
ls
(find what folder is your windows drive)
cd "folder"

and you should be golden. :-)

If this doesn't work or there is no folder there that is your windows drive, let me know.

Hi a-money

Check your

/mnt directory

You'll find your mounted Windows partition there.

Yeah, like Skyline said and like I said before. You have to change from your Home directory to the /mnt directory. If you use KDE on the left hand side of the file browser there is a file structure (or there can be with a click of the button) then you can just navigate to your mnt directory and it should be in there.
