This is why i have a problem :


I had disconnectd the 80 GB windows drive and only my 20 GB unpartitioned disk was connected for installin FC3 ...

So now wen i want to use windwos i change boot settin to HDD 0 and wen Linux then HDD 1 in BIOS.

dunno wer the boot loader is ... how to change this ???

I have done a normal desktop installation ... auto - partition ...

also if someone could tell me how to read n write on windows partitions in Linux and Linux files in windows !!

plz reply asap

and btw .... Linux is cool .... one more member in the open source community :)

Hey dude i guess u must be knowing this fact that,
each hdd hv a boot portion on it called HDAorB-0,
the place where we install boot loader or mbr,
so what is there when we hv two HDD connected then only the first HDD hv this part but as u hv saprated both while installing so both hv diffrent boot loader,
in first it's dos & in second it's LILO or GURB

Walking, since 2004.
for mounting ur windows partitions on fc3.. do the following

i am assuming that ur looged in as root and u have fat32 windows partitions:

first create a folder anywhere u like.... lets say a folder called 'drive' in /mnt

now go to terminal and type

mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/drive

ur c: will be hda1
d: will be hda5
e: will be hda6 and so on,,,,

to auto-mount ur windows partitons.. i.e. to make linux mount ur win partitons automatically copy these line to ur /etc/fstab file

/dev/hda1 /mnt/drive vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/drive2 vfat defaults 0 0

here u can add e: by adding another line /dev/hda6 /mnt/drive3 vfat defaults 0 0

make sure to make the 'drive', drive2' and drive3 folders in /mnt

otherwise it will not mount

WINDOWS IS TOO INFERNAL TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS LINUX partitions////
