Mounting WinXp Harddrives


ok, i want to mount my other 2 hardrives wich are NTFS beacuse i have all my mp3s there, i want to mount them read-only, ive tried this

root@darkstar:/mnt# mkdir windowsc
root@darkstar:/mnt# mount /dev/hda /mnt/windowsc
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

and this

root@darkstar:/mnt# mount -t ntfs /dev/hda /mnt/windowsc
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda,
or too many mounted file systems



this is my fstab config right now

/dev/hdd1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 auto,user,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0


and pls tell me how can i automount my other 2 hd (NTFS) at boot and available to other user, i know they must be in fstab but i dont know the propeties they must have, could be like this?

/dev/hda /mnt/windowsc ntfs auto,user,ro 0 0
/dev/hdb /mnt/windowsf ntfs auto,user,ro 0 0

tnx

/dev/hdb /mnt/windowsf ntfs auto,user,ro 0 0
well the first thing you will notice (as i bolded above) is that your not specifying the partition .. you are only typing hda or hdb, whereas for example you should be typing hda1 or hdb1 ... if you don't specify it wont' know ....
fdisk -l
will give you this info ..

you can clearly see from this line:
Code:
/dev/hdd1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
that
Code:
mount /dev/hda /mnt/windowsc
doesn't match at all, and shouldn't work. hda is the physical drive, hda1 is the first partiion on hda etc....

well first, for future knowledge you should start a new thread for your problem as it will be seen easier by others... the only reason why i found this again is because i knew the orginal thread starter solved his problem and couldn't understand why someone else was responding to this thread ... anyways as to your problem ...

first and foremost in your command you didn't even specify a fs type, as all you typed was the -t without following it with a fs .... look at the first post for correct syntax ...

anyways the other thing is, is that it appears that you don't have NTFS support and your going to have to add it ... either by going here or actually recompiling your kernel and adding the support ...
