Mounting to file systems


I have a dual boot setup with linux 9 and win 2k. windows gets 200GB of my 250GB drive since I use it more, and linux gets the rest.

There are a lot of files on my windows ntfs partition that I want to access from linux. How do I mount that drive?

I also have a usb CF card reader. Linux sees it, and when I stick a card in shows the information about it, but i can't figure out how to mount it to the mnt folder.

Thanks for the help.

You need to add NTFS support. BTW this is read only.
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/

Then create a directory i.e.
mkdir /mnt/ntfs

To mount:
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/ntfs

Add to /etc/fstab
/dev/hda1 /mnt/ntfs ntfs umask=222 0 0

Change the device ID i.e. /dev/hda1 if different.
