Does fedora support NTFS partition ?


Mandrake can auto detect NTFS drive and be able to copy files from there, can redhat fedora do that ?

Not by default. You can install an rpm that will give you read access, but on a default install of Fedora, you cannot view NTFS.

Go here: http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/fedora1.html

There are files and instructions on how to get NTFS going in fedora. I have it going in my system, but that's because I compiled the latest kernel into my system.

If you want to install fedora but not loose your ntfs capability, you can copy the line from your /etc/fstab file that has you ntfs partition, save it somewhere, and paste it into fedora's /etc/fstab . When you reboot you will get your NTFS partition (assuming you followed the directions at the above site and the parameters are correct in fstab ).
