mounting windows HD


hi!

i need to backup some files from windows HD to linux HD.. the problem is .... i cant mount the damn win HD :|

"mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel"

this sentence pissed me off... so ive tried some things:

cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/

then i went to menuconfig and i put a "M" on NTFS Filesystem Support (read-only).
then i typed "make dep".

So... i tried to mount after all this and,

"mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel"

:S

does some1 can help me ? tkx

oh.. and i dont know if it helps...

[root@home linux-2.4.20-8]# cat /etc/fstab
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2

So.. you compiled your own kernel..... but didn't say that you booted it. Have you?

In case it's too problematic, try one live-cd distribution. For example, Knoppix. It has ntfs support.

If you want to mount NTFS in LINUX, then firstly you have to install a module supporting your kernel.
You can get module rpm for your kernel and more information on this link http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/instructions.html

If you put "M" that means you compiled it as a module. This means that you can activate or de-activate the support when you want as opposed to having it always on. All you have to do is load the module.
