two hard drives - wine


I have two har ddrives on my computer, one for my windows XP, one for Linux. My question is, can I somehow run programs off my XP drive through wine?

P.S. I am using FC2

You can run a windows .exe with wine if it is compatable with wine
Open a shell and enter
wine /path_to_file


You can also install Xwine for a GUI to wine.

You are going to find that wine won't run just all windows apps

Uh... no.

I know how to do that with wine, I just need to know how to access my other Hard drive. It doesnt seem overly detected.

To access a drive you will have to mount it.

Look at the man pages for mount and read them.
Also look at your fstab conf file to see if it is getting auto mounted
fstab is at /etc/fstab

A windows drive mounts with
mount -t vfat if it is a fat32 ddive
mount -t ntfs if it is a ntfs file system

Example:
If the linux drive is /hda and the windows drive is /hdb
and you were mounting the windows drive as /windows
and the win drive is fat32

mount -t vfat /dev/hdb /mnt/windows

If the /windows directory does not exist then make it with the mkdir command first

I hope this helps
