Mandrake 9.1 slow reading /mnt directory
Was trying Mandrake 9.1 and it all seems mightily impressive but for one thing. Whenever I try to access the /mnt directory so I can get to the files on my windows partition it is painfully slow, it can take about 2minutes for it to read and display the drives. Granted I can avoid this by placing shortcuts to the drives on the desktop, but i'd rather know why this might be happening for future reference.

I'd have to guess with a:

If you look at your fstab entries for your windoze partitions, is Supermount involved at all? If not, are the drives mounting at boot time, or is it only upon access to them? I suspect basically that the drives aren't getting loaded until you attempt an access on them. This would explain the sluggish-ness you are describing. To remedy that you could edit the fstab entries surrounding your windoze partitions to your exacting needs and have it get mounted during that AMAZINGLY long boot time ;) (The ONLY gripe I've had with Mandrake since 8.0 was the boot time).
