Accesing my NTFS(WinXP) from FC2 and eth0 Problems


hi, i'm having problems accesing my NTFS partition. I've been reading and one post said to type this:

mkdir /media; mount /dev/hda1 /media/ -t ntfs

and so i did, but the terminal answered

mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel

I'm using FC2(tettnang) 2.6.5-1.358 on a i686

how am i supposed to "upgrade" kernel if i cant access internet from linux, therefor i cant grab the files i downloaded for my wireless and my modem to work in my NTFS partition.

my eth0 can't determine IP for some unkown reason to me. FC2 detects my network card without any problems but it keeps failing to give me a valid ip address. how can i fix this?? is there any line command to do this??

please help,
thanks a lot

NTFS:

Fedora has patched kernel and NTFS support is removed. You've to have install a vanilla kernel from http://www.kernel.org/ .

well...for ntfs you could try : #modprobe ntfs ( if the module is present , it will be loaded )
after that try to mount the part. again. ( otherwise you have to compile that module....)

and for eth0...i don't know if there's a config-tool in FC2...( there should be...)

edit: maybe just try : #dhcpcd ?

Better solution:

download precompiled driver for fedora kernel from here http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/fedora2.html

The default install does not include NTFS support.

eth0 answers

/sbin/ifconfig eth0

eth0 link encap:eth0 HWaddr 00:0F:1F:18:ADB3
inet6addr: fe80::20f:ifff:fe18:adb3/64 MTU:1500
interrupt 1

i assume that the eth0 if working properly, but how can i tell the eth0 device to "repair" as in xp so to have an ip assigned. im under a dhcp server. i can't configure nor dns, nor gateway....and so on

what else can be done??

thanks,
as soon as i get my eth0 up in order to have internet ill download the rpm you recommend. thanks all

Cool done, wireless now

Hey Egag, thanks for this great feedback

i'm done with all that by now. i've downloaded ndiswrapper now for my wireless but somehow the "make install" doesn't work. perhaps because i dont have the source of the kernel installed. any recommendations?

i'll have my ntfs partition mounted automatically with your command line
thanks for that.

thanks, ill be back
