Very new to fedora. I could use a bit of help

Well I have fedora core 1 with kernel 2.4.22-1.2188.nptl and I have tried to mount my ntfs partition and I have used the commands listed on this page w. linuxforum com/ linux_tutorials /1/1.php and when ever I enter the command I get the message "fs type umask=0 not supported by kernel" also i have edited the fstab file as per intructions. still very very lost .

And another question I have is when ever I strat up I get this error message saying "Could not look up internet address for dhcp-43-39. This may cause Gnome to not operate properly. Try adding Dhcp-43-39 to the file /etc/hosts"
Now does that mean all I have to do is type the name to that file and problem solved or do I have to use some other Jedi tricks to fix the problem?

Thanks guys n gals for any help you provide me with.

Well as for the answer to mounting NTFS I don't think that is supported under the current linux kernel (yet). I may be wrong however. Do a google search for "mounting NTFS file system in unix"

For your second question, just do the following:

open /etc/hosts with your favorite editor (must be root, use the 'su -l' command to log in as root when logged in as another user) it should have a line that looks something like this:

" localhost localhost.localdomain"

now under this just add your ip (if dhcp add all the ips you could be) and your host name as follows:

" dhcp-43-39 dhcp-43-39"
where is your ip address and dhcp-43-39 is your hostname.

your hostname can be set (when root) as follows:

'hostname myhostname'

your computer will then be called "myhostname"

Hope that helps.
