Question Help mounting win Fat32 partitions in RH 7.1 KDE

I am trying to mount two Fat32 partitions under RH 7.1 with KDE. The first is my windows system disk (I dual-boot win2k), the second is also fat32 I keep my mp3 files on.

Neither Partitions or Block Devices in the KDE control center can see anything other than my ext2 and swap partitions.

I also can'tt mount my zip100 drive, although at least it shows up

I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Talking Got it --feel like an idiot

I finally found my answer in another post:

I don know if this will fix it automatically, or if Il have to do this each time I boot. Either way, I can get to my windows files, at least for now!

To mount each Windows partition automatically when you boot, add a line for it in your /etc/fstab file:
/dev/hda1   /mnt/win   vfat   noauto,user   0 0
Make sure to substitute your actual drive/partition designation for the "hda1", and your specific mount point for the "/mnt/win".
