Transfering my files

Hello -

Currently Im dual-booting with Windows 2000 and Mandrake 9.1.

I want to put all my documents that I made with OpenOffice and plus I have some pictures (.jpg) and PDF files and such onto Mandrake.

Should I just copy all those onto a CD-R and mount it on Mandrake?

Please help me. Thanks

if your kernal has support for reading NTFS built in you should be able to mount the windows partition right from Linux and copy the files.

mount /dev/hda? /mnt/win2k

has worked for me. I am not sure of your windows partition number or if it is even on hda but you know better whre that is. If your kernel does not support NTFS reading you can either compile with that option or I think add a module. I am not very good with modules however as I usually just recompile the option I need into the kernel. You will need to be root to be able to read the files and chown them to your user or just chmod them once they are moved to your Linux partition.
