Access ME partition from RH6.1.


Hello to all,
Have recently installed RH 6.1 on my Windows ME box. This is on ethernet to my W2000 box with modem. I'm using internet connection sharing. I'd like to download to ME and transfer over to the Linux partition. Or get Linux partition to use internet connection sharing. Tried DOS and XDOS but get no hdimage in etc/fstab "I think". Any ideas, help, solutions, prayers is appreciated.
TIA
GlennC

Download in ME, then boot linux & copy it. To access the Windows partition you need to mount it first. The '/mnt/windows' folder needs to exist. You can only do this as root untill you add a line in the fstab (search it).

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

Browse to the /mnt/windows and you'll find all your windows stuff in there.

Its very unclear what you are asking. If you want access to the ME partition then create a mount point (directory) under /mnt say called ME. Edit /etc/fstab and enter a line;
/dev/hdxy /mnt/Me vfat defaults,umask=000 0 0
wrt to internet sharing you should be able to use dhcp client or point the network at the gateway. i.e. in your /etc/network/interfaces specify the gateway address.

Thanks. But I just installed RH9 and my CDROM quit working. So I can't install Samba. Endeavour to persevere.
