How to access windows files, having 2 disks on PC?


Hello!

I have 2 disks installed on my machine. On the first one i have installed Microsoft xp on the second one Red Hat 9.0. Let's say the name of the first one (Windows) is A and the name of the second one (Red Hat) is B.

I want to access some files on disk A, running Linux on disk B. How to do that?

Thank you for answers!

If your Windoze partition is formatted as NTFS you won't be able to write to it, just to read it. On the other hand, if it is formatted as FAT32, you will.

Which is it?

If you don't know, do as root from RedHat ->
# fdisk -l
and post it here.

Okay?

My win disk is NTFS formatted. In fact it doesn't matter if i can't write on it, it's important to read from it to me.
