just checking...


is this an ok line to add to my /etc/fstab so that my ntfs partition will load up when i boot?

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win ntfs ro,owner,users 0 0

its really the options-- after ntfs, you know-- that i'm not sure about. i'm not quite even 6 months into linux so its all new and scary to me.

thanks

man fstab

'nuff said.
BTW, one of the best ideas is to check if it works by trying. It looks about right though (don't blame me, though. Only problem may be the options).

yeah, i just know that ntfs is really ornery about being written to. and didn't want to possibly piss it off in any other way either.
