"linuxconf" command not working in bash!!


I want to RedHat 7.3(GNOME) to detect my Windows OS(FAT 32)
partition so that I can access the files available on Windows from
Linux as well.

I read in the Net that this can be done using the "linuxconf"
from bash. However when I type "linuxconf" in bash, it is
unable to find such a command(here I am in the user mode not
as root).

you'll have to edit you /etc/fstab file ..
adding something like:
/dev/hd[a-d][1-9] /mnt/mountpoint vfat user,auto 0 0
there is just a broad example cause i have no idea what device you are trying to mount and what mountpoint you have so you'll have to fill in the blanks..
you'll get the idea how to do it just by looking at the structure of everything else in the file...a real example would be:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_drive vfat user,auto 0 0

Hi again,

Here I am trying to mount Drive C of Windows 2000 PE, since
I have made Drive D as the root for RedHat OS.

I have two hard disk drives only ( C and D )
