Unhappy Mount NTFS Partitions

I have brought an ipod of my friends with a lot of movies and i was then running on windows. The Whole sys was infected and i reloaded the windows operating system but it worked fine only upto two restarts. Then i started and completely successfully installed fedora core 10 i386. I Have very much important information in the windows hard drives. Please tell me anyone how to mount these partitions from the beginning.

Are you saying you were running windows on an ipod? If not, what are you saying? An ipod uses the FAT file system anyway, I think.

If you want to mount ntfs filesystems, look into the ntfs-3g package.

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sd** /mnt/afolder -o force
Replace aFolder and sd** by the real values. But, if you use Gnome, you should find your drive in the "places" menu in the top bar. In KDE3, it will be on yours desktop. And KDE4 was not quite ready in FC10, so don't mess with it, newer versions, however, are much better.
