I have a dual boot Win98/RH7 box. I would like to know if it
is possible for linux to access files in the WIN partition?

Yep, it is possible. You can either edit your fstab to auto mount your windows partition upon boot or you can try this,

mount -t msdos /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

Basically the msdos is your type of file system your mounting, like my win98, I have it setup as msdos, your could be that or vfat or whatever. The /dev/hda, the hda is the partition it resides on, like you have windows on hda1 and your linux on hda2 or 3 and so on. If your not sure, just look at your /etc/lilo.conf file and look at the label for your win98 boot. It should tell you there. and in the /mnt directory, you might want to create a windows directory or whatever you want to name it, this is the directory you will use to view all your windows files.

If all goes well and you mount the directory, just cd into your /mnt/windows and start browsing your files.

Thanx for the tips trickykid, WIN98 does reside on hda1.
I have a Winmodem, so am unable to get online with Linux.
I have successfully installed StarOffice 5.2 from a promo disc but it lacks StarOffice Player and Adabas D. These files are downloaded and waiting to be installed if I can
copy them from windows. Many thanks,

Results:
[root@Localhost /dev]# mount -t dos /dev/hda1
Usage:mount [-1hV]
mount -a [-nfFrsvw] [-t vsftypes]
mount [-nfrsvw] [-o options] special | node
mount [-nfrsvw] [-t vfstype] [-o options] special node
A special device can be indicated by -L label or -Uuid

There is no reference to /dev/hda1 in the /mnt directory
However it is in lilo.conf:

Other=/dev/hda1
LABEL=dos

Not sure what to do next?

Hello
Hope you haven't had all your sheep killed by the fascists.
I suggest you use Linuxconfig in the file systems menu, access local volume, click on add and enter your partition details. When you activate the changes, your fstab file is edited for you, and you should be able to see the drive. May need to click the mount button initially, but it should appear automatically at reboot.

Funny you're mention of sheep killing fascists the same day
I receive a mad cow e-mail and repeated port scans to: 21,
515, 1027, 1067 and 12345. My flock is in good health,
although I am a little short of RAM, HA!
That would have been my next question, what you already
answered. Thanx Jim.
