first in a console.....

mkdir /mnt/Windows


open it in any editor of your choice...then...

add this...

/dev/hda1 /mnt/Windows vfat


now...the above is only if your windows partition is of your Primary IDE Master and it is the first partition
change it for you IDE and Partition
i.e Primaary IDE Slave parition 1 is /dev/hdb1

that's it.....that should auto mount your windows partition at boot up to the folder /mnt/Windows

goto /mnt/Windows to access the windows files

Nice HOWTO.... but for what O/S is this for? Sounds like samba or something on some Linux O/S. But "save" ?

What are you trying to do? To replace the man pages or what? Your indications aren't even complete. What if someone has (and there are many) Windows on a NTFS partition? There are options that can be added to the mount command as well (umask being probably the most used one).
goto /mnt/Windows to access the windows files
You didn't say how to do that part!

Just a heads up to anyone else replying to this thread - it was posted on "Thursday, March 22nd, 2001 03:14:45" and so is 4 years old.

Damn, I didn't notice that. Now that you brought it to my attention I realize that this thread has been "digged" out by that guy who keeps doing that with a few other dozen posts...*cough*really annoying*cough*. Sorry.

@ t3gah

You've posted +100 times in the last two days to all 0-replies threads. I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve here, but it's quite annoying and you are bringing back dead threads as this one making the boards a mess. Try to spend your free time (and apparently you've have lots of it) making helpful replies (not one line saying "Great" as most of the Jeremy's threads announcing something). Looks like spam to me... please stop doing that, thanks!

I'm going to go ahead and close this thread. Most of the others have already been taken care of.
