sorry about the alignment it screwed up. I want to mount hda5 so that when i type in /mnt I'll have my hda5 there as a clickable icon. I can't remember how to get it to mount automatically when mandrake 10 boots up. Also Linux can write to Fat32 right.

Why do you want to mound hda5? it is a swap partition!

anyway to mount a filesystem you need to make a directory in /mnt called windows or whatever


mount -t auto /dev/hda? /mnt/windows

You can mount automatically by editing /etc/fstab

doesn't work. It keeps saying it doesn't support fat32. Is this true but it works with my usb pen drive. plus it keeps locking my access to the dir i mounted the partition to.
