Exclamation NTFS partition in SuSe 9.3

Hey, I'm new in this field, but I want to learn more.
I installed SuSe 9.3 but I want to see my Windows partition (NTFS) in SuSe, also.
Could you help me? I only know that I have to go in Console mode...
Thank you

First remember to update your packages. Especially the kernel. Then reboot and check if you can see your ntfs partitions.

If not:

Open up your yast/partitioner and take a look if its allready mounted under /mnt or /media

You can also mount it manually using this command:
mount -t ntfs /dev/<your-ntfs-partition> /<your mountpoint>

A couple of things to note:

1. Under Suse, you will only be able to access the partition as root, unless you specify "umask=0000" as a mount option.
2. Even with the umask option, the ntfs partition will be read-only. Linux does not support stable read-write to ntfs partitions.

If you want to share data between your Windows and Linux partitions, then you will need a FAT32 partition... or use a USB memory stick.
