Unhappy Mount NTFS Partitions

Hi! I am a NEWBIE. I know nothing about linux. But my friend says linux is good. So, i kept a copy of fedora core 10 i386. My fiend has a lot of movies about 100 in his ipod. So, i took it. It contains lot of viruses and i opened the ipod in windows but my windows has malfunctioned due to the virus. So, i have installed the fedora core 10 i386. I have some important information in the windows ntfs partitions. Please tell me how do i mount those ntfs partitions. Please, tell me this is urgent.

if it ain't automounted use this:

mkdir /mnt/windows
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -o umask=0002,nls=utf8

replace hda1 with ntfs partition

will be mounted in folder /mnt/windows

you will need to get familiar with few things first, use/read the manual pages. You can have it by opening a terminal (a dos like shell) then type "man" for the commands you wanted to know/read about. Get familiar with these three commands: "fdisk", "mkdir" and "mount", for example:

user@host--$: man fdisk <Enter> [this will open you the help/manual files for the command fdisk; to scroll down press space bar, to quit press "q"]

Use fdisk -l command to locate your NTFS volume/partitions to be mounted.

good luck

'ntfs-3g' is not necessary to mount 'ntfs'. 'ntfs-3g' would be necessary if a user wants to write to the mounted filesystem. The Linux kernel can recognize 'ntfs'.

I believe Fedora 10 comes with ntfs-3g out of the box. Also, would it be mount /dev/sda1 instead in Fedora 10 even if the system is old.

I worry about these viruses, linux is not immune. Moreover, if you end up saving to an external medium and that is introduced to a Windows system it will infect that system. You could attach it to a Windows system as a slave and run something such as AVG from the 'master' drive BEFORE you open the infected partition. If you have already done this then ignore the above.
