How did you try to mount the Windows Partition (command ??) ?
Is this partition NTFS or FAT or FAT32 ?
What was the error message ?

it is not possible to mount windows partition during instalation.You can do after instalation.Edit etc/fstab as root.You can't mount NTFS with default Kernel 2.4.x of red hat 9.You have to recompile it or install 2.6.x
And for disk space you may have less space available for instalation. Increase your free space.

Hello bngrhl,

Here is a link that may help you:

I followed the instructions, and have had no problems at all with (auto) mounting my partition under Win98Se.
Let's hope it'll work with WinXP with a few changes.
