Reading Windows partitions on Fedora Core 3

Hi, I'm just wondering how I can view my windows hard drives on FC3.
It does show that I have 2 HDD's inthe device browser, but I don't know how to browse them. The format is in NTFS for windows. Thanks.

Use "mount". From command line as root, run:
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/hd/
In the command above I assume that your Windows partition is the first partition in the C: drive which is the more common. You must also create the mount-point (/mnt/hd) if it does not exist.
