problems with captive in Suse 10


Hey all,
I recently aquired the need to access a ntfs partition on one of my drives, so i read up a bit and found captive.
Link
I got it installed then attempted a mount and this is what happened

Code:
xvium@d154-5-99-199:~> su
Password:
d154-5-99-199:/home/xvium # cd /mnt
d154-5-99-199:/mnt # mkdir windows
d154-5-99-199:/mnt # mount -t captive-ntfs /dev/hdf1 /mnt/windows
d154-5-99-199:/mnt # ls
/bin/ls: windows: Connection refused
.  ..
d154-5-99-199:/mnt # cd windows
d154-5-99-199:/mnt/windows # ls
/bin/ls: .: Connection refused
d154-5-99-199:/mnt/windows #
I have no idea what is wrong here but here is what fdisk -l reads , maybey it will come in handy.

Code:
d154-5-99-199:/mnt/windows # fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80060424192 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9733 cylinders

I also added to fstab and this is what it looks like

/dev/hdf1       /mnt/windows    captive-ntfs    umask=000        0      0

Can't you just go into Yast, then under system click on partitioner.

Click on the partition you want to acceess, then at the bottom click edit. Then where it says mount point, type something in like /mnt/windows or something that you'll know where to find it.

That way you won't have to mount it!

Smile Windows partitions

I don't understand the problem. When I installed Suse 10
it automatically recognised and mounted all my windows
partitions. I can read and write to FAT 32 partitions and
read (but not write to) NTFS partitions.
