Mnt windows Partition


First create Directroy call " c " and also "d" in /mnt.

then edit fstab file in /etc Dir.

in fstab file add some line like,

/dev/hda1(HDD name) /mnt/c( vfat(win$ fstype) defaults 0 0.

do same for "d" with "HDD5" what ever ur D Drive.
after done this,

cd /mnt
mount c
mount d

cd c
ls -l

You might switch the following user,umask=0000 for defaults, which allows user write access to the files. There are of course many options available depending on your objectives. FYI, a line in my fstab reads:

/dev/sdb1 /mnt/dos/d vfat user,umask=0000 0 0

This mounts the first partition of the second scsi disk on /mnt/dos/d (I don't want to tie up my whole /mnt mount point with read/write permissions.
