Holidays are coming!!

Ok, after next week, uni will be over. During the month break, i'm going to install redhat 9.0 which i have already downloaded.

Just 1 question. I've used my friend's linux box before. it was running mandrake 9.2. I saw that he was able to mount windows partitions (NTFS) and access data like mp3, movies, word documents etc.

Just curious, if i were to download mp3s or movie and create word documents on my linux box, how would i be able to access them in windows? I mean, i can't write to windows NTFS partitions right? ! more concern is drivers. I checked with my laptop's website (Acer) they don't seem to have drivers for sound and video. Is there any other place i can find generic drivers or so considering i use my laptop most of the time for movies, music and some gaming.

Cheers mates.

Welcome to the free world.

While you may have to get drivers for games, and movies (i dont have drivers, so i cant play demanding games, and if i try dvd it lags, but you don't notices that after a couple of minutes)

I am sure, that you dont need drivers for sound, unless you made your own soundcard.

As for sendeing data between the two OS, why don't you create a partion, and format it as fat-32. This can be read/write in both GNU/Linux and M$
