Ahh, I give up. I really wanted to try doing this w/o any help but.......

what do I have to do to mount the NTFS drive I have in my system. Its the secondary drive on the first IDE Channel (GRUB sees it at hd1).

Also, I would like to be able to click on the /mnt directory in Konqueror and see all the partitions that I have on the two hard drives I have in my system.

I've fooled around with the mount command and I think that I need to do something to a fabled "fstab" which i can't find....

My system is RedHat 7.2 with nothing special done to the system since I installed it a few weeks ago.

thanks for your help!

I would presume your NTFS partition is hdb1 if its the secondary drive on the first IDE channel ??

Example on how to mount a NTFS partition:

mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb1 /mnt/ntfs

Break it down like this:

mount = command
-t ntfs = type of filesystem your mounting
/dev/hda1 = the partition your ntfs resides on
/mnt/ntfs = the empty directory your mounting it to

You have to be sure to have NTFS support in your kernel. Not sure, search the forums as this is asked all the time.

Your fstab file is located in /etc:
