I'm having a little trouble understanding your problem.

What I got so far is that you copied these pictures onto this external hard drive already. When you open them and look at them on the Windows XP machine you see the actual 22.5MB files. On your linux box you open them and only can see the 1KB shortcuts. Is this correct?

Also please post output of
Code:
mount
run from a terminal. thanks.

Looks like a conflict with the file format... You may have used an open source format that Windows doesn't recognize. What exactly is the extension of your picture files on the cd?

That's fine- just trying to help. That was the first thing I thought of.

Well, IIRC, Red Hat v4 is outdated, so updates will fail. You need to upgrade your system to a newer version. FWIW, in a lot of cases, file formats get changed when new versions are released.

Hope this helps.

Are you running RH4 or RHEL4(Red Hat Enterprise Linux)? They are two completely different products(essentially unrelated). RH4 is a very old product (pre 2000?). RHEL4 is a currently supported product (RHEL4.8 is the current of the 4 series).
