Accessing files on my Windows partition
How do I go about accessing files on my Windows partition? Such as music. I have XMMS installed and I would like to play some music while I work on installing everything else I need, so Id appreciate a quick response :)

You can read its from linux in the windoze partitions.
You dont need anything more

darktalon96 all you have to do is mount the windows partition, then just add the dir/files in XMMS

If the partition is NTFS, you might need to set a umask when mounting to be able to read it.

You can try something along the lines of;

mount -o umask=022 /dev/hdX /mnt/XXXX

EDIT - It's my Birthday :)

some distro's (redhat 9) do not have ntfs support in the kernel.. so u will need to download an rpm. seach
