    Friends,

    I'm not able to open the windows drives in Ubuntu even though they are listed. So can anyone guide me what to write in "fstab" inorder to mount them using "pmount" command(with example)?

    Thanks:)

    they get automatically mounted when u istall it, in live cd mode u can see them but they aren't mounted.

    there'll be a workaround to mount them in live cd too.

    u can use mount command in root
    Code:
    $mount -t[ntfs][fat32] /dev/hda* /mnt/windows
    where
    *=partion no. Type fdisk -l for more info
    choose anyone from NTFS or FAT32
    create a folder in /mmt with name "windows"

    Open a terminal and create a folder in the /media directory using sudo.
    Ex:
    cd /media
    sudo mkdir Disk1

    Then open Disks from
    System>Administration>Disks

    Here click your hard-disk and select partitions tab.
    select the partition you want to mount and enter the path to the newly created directory and click enable.
    Repeat for all your partitons.

    Regards...
