Smile view/edit Windows folders/files in Fedora 2 or 4

Hi all,

I am the first time to post messages here and would like to ask the following questions regarding Fedora 2 or 4 :

1. I have installed Fedora 4 in my PC that is partitioned. However, I found there's no steps or config. for the sharing so I can edit/view Windows files/folders when I am running linux. May be there's a partition error that it may also affect, there's still only C drive in the HD, please recommend for the general partition format for server installation mode. Thanks !

My current filesystems partition :
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 5952284 268948 5376096 5% /
/dev/hda2 497861 17689 454468 4% /boot
/dev/shm 123124 0 123124 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda7 1486080 35124 1374248 3% /home
/dev/hda10 793572 17236 735372 3% /opt
/dev/hda9 793572 17704 734904 3% /tmp
/dev/hda5 3968092 3309312 453956 88% /usr
/dev/hda6 2972236 37624 2781196 2% /usr/local
/dev/hda8 988088 118368 818716 13% /var

It seems there's nothing shown for Windows C drive, any methods ?

2. I have also installed Fedora 2 in another PC, I would like to set a router for networking sharing. I have also downloaded "rp-pppoe-3.6.tar" and going to configure it. Is it alright ? What's suitable issues should be concerned if I would regard it as a server with somehow security solutions and etc. Thanks !

Use the "fdisk -l" command to see all the partitions. I'm guessing the windows c is hda1 as it's not on the list you found. To use it make a folder for it (mkdir /mnt/c) and mount it (mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/c). As root of course. To do it automatically on startup you will need to add a line for hda1 to your /etc/fstab file. The line should be alot like the other lines in there, except for the umask thing that's needed for regular users to access the partition. Do a search on it, the are many threads here with exactly what you need to put in the file.

As for the internet thing, more detail is needed. Sharing with what (what router, what internet connection)? Why do you need pppoe? What sort of server will you be running? etc...

Oh and post your questions as separate threads... Q #1 would probably have been answered alot faster if it were in the "Linux-newbie" forum or something.
