Mounting Question


I accidently had my Windows Dir mounted in /mnt rather then /mnt/windows

eg...

root@deathrow:/home/zero# ls /mnt/
$VAULT$.AVG CONFIG.SYS NVIDIA WINDOWS
AUTOEXEC.BAT Documents and Settings Program Files boot.ini
AVG7DB_F.DAT IO.SYS RECYCLER ntldr
AVG7QT.DAT MSDOS.SYS SXS pagefile.sys
BOOT.BKK NTDETECT.COM System Volume Information

What can I do to get those files mounted in a new folder called Windows (/mnt/windows).

I would also like to be able to view the dir (/mnt/windows) rather then have to log in as root to view it with a gui. Right now I have to login through Konsole and view the stuff via text mode.

Hi,
Read this: How to edit /etc/fstab.

Basically, do this:
Code:
cd /
umount /mnt
cd /mnt
mkdir windows
You'll find a line like this in the /etc/fstab file:
Code:
/dev/hda1  	/mnt     ntfs   	defaults  	1 2
Just add /windows to that /mnt (/mnt/windows).

Edit it and save. Now, just run mount /mnt/windows.

HTH,

fstab lines :
----------------
/dev/hda2 /win-d vfat defaults,users,umask=022 1 0
/dev/hda3 /win-e ntfs ro,user,umask=022 1 0
---------------
this is what i use for vfat and ntfs partitions ( notice the options )
permissions for vfat and ntfs are set in the fstab.
users can read ntfs and r/w vfat part.
