Sound problems, confused and help with NTFS


OK,
1. i have a problem with my sound now. i have both the soundblaster live 5.1 and the onboard ac97 vt8233 on the Gigabyte GA-7VAXP. well i go to the sound detection utility and when i have the ac97 set as the primary device and click play test sound nothing happens. but when i click the play test sound under the sound blaster, while the primary sound is still the ac97, it plays a the sound. and when it does this this vice versa selection. yet a couple days after i installed linux, it found new hardware defined as unkown, up to four devices, i think having to do with sound. need sound again, plz help.

2. is there any way to get my 2 other hard drives formatted in ntfs, along with the other drive partitioned in ntfs and ext3 as well, to read in linux?

2. Just mount it like you would mount any other partition

mount /dev/hdaX /mount/point

if that dosn't work, try and:

mount -o umask=022 /dev/hdaX /mount/point

This will only allow you to read the mounted NTFS partition, writing on the other hand is pretty shonkey with Linux and most times end's up destroying data.

it says the moint point /mount/point does not exist.

and by destroyed data, do you mean the source data or the data that is being copied?

What I ment by /mount/point is point the mount to whatever directory that you wish. What I did is created a directory in /mnt names windows. So then the command would read:

mount -o umask=022 /dev/hdX /mnt/windows

Sorry, should have made it a little more clear, hope that works.

red hat 9.0 does not come with the ntfs module preinstalled so download the rpm from here:
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/redhat9.html

select the rpm depending on your kernel and arch (default for red hat 9 is 2.4.20-8 i think)

install it using
rpm -ivh filename.rpm

then mount it as Kristijan said.
