Viewing Windows Partions

I used SuSE before and it allows you to access your windows partions w/o any effert. How can this be achieved with RedHat 9.0???

Well you would do this by mounting the partition with the mount command.

You can also edit your fstab file to mount automatically at boot time.

man mount
man fstab

Try searching the forums for solutions as well, this is asked all the time. Ask if you run into any problems or don't understand something.

Dear PlatinumRik
For viewing window partition in Red Hat linux 9.0
type kdf on konsole then see what is the type of disk partion ie is it hda or hdb or .... . Suppose it is hda then simply type mount /dev/hda1 /windows_c (where u have to create windows_c directory in / ) for mounting the C: of windows. In this way u can mount all drives of windows. For automounting all these drive u can make entry in /etc/rc.local and make entry like
mount /dev/hda1 /windows_c.
i hope this will solve ur problem enjoy....

Keep in mind that if your Windows partition is formatted with NTFS, Red Hat doesn,t support this out of the box - you'll either need the RPM or you can recompile your kernel - for the RPM:
