NTFS drives have disapeared?


I want to make it very clear that I was having no problems up untill 15 mins ago. The drives were there i could reAd and write to them.

Ive been having trouble getting grub to work so I ran

grub-install -recheck /dev/hda/

and watched some movies compiled wine/mplayer

then rebooted and loaded linux this time with the boot loader
before i was using the cd to boot.

I am running OpenSUSE 10.2
well now my windows drives are gone the folders for them are empty? WTF? Anyone know why its doing this both drives are infact VIA SATA Raids on seperate raid controllers. If i reboot windows reloads them both fine and can see all files? Help?!?!

my fstab file looks like this
Code:
/dev/hda2            /                    ext3       acl,user_xattr        1 1
/dev/hda3            /home                ext3       acl,user_xattr        1 2
/dev/mapper/via_ciifcgidcf_part1 /windows/C           ntfs-3g       user,users,gid=users,umask=0002 0 0
/dev/mapper/via_chfahceefe_part1 /windows/Media       ntfs-3g       user,users,gid=users,umask=0002 0 0
/dev/hda1            swap                 swap       defaults              0 0
proc                 /proc                proc       defaults              0 0
sysfs                /sys                 sysfs      noauto                0 0
debugfs              /sys/kernel/debug    debugfs    noauto                0 0
usbfs                /proc/bus/usb        usbfs      noauto                0 0
devpts               /dev/pts             devpts     mode=0620,gid=5       0 0

Have you upgraded the kernel?
If so did you recompile the fuse modules and ntfs-3g or include it in the kernel build?

If nither apply then contact the ntfs-3g developers. They really say their filesystem is safe. I was told by the developer if anything ever happens contact them.

I really don't think thats the problem because if I do:
Code:
kaaolinux:/mnt # ntfs-3g -o ro,gid=users,umask=0002 /dev/mapper/via_ciifcgidcf_part1  /win_1
Failed to access '/dev/mapper/via_ciifcgidcf_part1': No such file or directory
kaaolinux:/mnt #
Also I would prefer not to bother the developers because of my incompetence.

I have established that it is some problem with what way it boots linux normally because as of now I have booted using the cd and both drives work ... help?

I have no idea what /dev/mapper/via_ciifcgidcf_part1 is. I only use to real ones like /dev/hda. So not sure what you have there.
