    Do you have 1000 Digit Tips and Tricks book? That one was given some time (about 8 months) back. Mounting procedure is given in there and is fairly simple. I don't remember the proc now because PCQ Linux 2004 and knoppix mounts them automatically :) Anyway, I will have a look at the proc given in that book and let you know.

    What distro/version of Linux are you using?

    Mounting Windows partitions in GNU/Linux

    # mkdir /mnt/c
    # mkdir /mnt/d
    # mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/c
    # mount -t ntfs /dev/hda5 /mnt/d


    This assumes that your C drive is a FAT32 partition and your D drive is NTFS partition. And also assuming that your kernel supports NTFS loadable kernel modules.

    after you are dome with your data transfer, you can unmount your partitons by.

    # umount /mnt/c
    # umount /mnt/d

    for automatic mounting using /etc/fstab .
    open /etc/fstab in some editor ... let us say the partitions u want to mount r /dev/hda1, /devhda5, /dev/hda6 ... then u have 2 add the lines ... /dev/hda6 is ntfs(remember ur kernel has to support ntfs, if not u can either compile for it or try linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net)

    /dev/hda1<tab>/mnt/Win_C<tab>vfat<tab>defaults<tab>0<space>0
    /dev/hda5<tab>/mnt/Win_C<tab>vfat<tab>defaults<tab>0<space>0
    /dev/hda6<tab>/mnt/Win_C<tab>ntfs<tab>defaults<tab>0<space>0

    save and exit .. and make the directory under /mnt as u have specified there in fstab and
    #mount -a

    or after rebooting it will always b mounted ..
    chk , #man fstab for what those fields stand for ...

    /dev/hda1 /mnt/Win_C vfat auto,defaults 0 0

    That auto directive has to be added to auto mount your partitions ...

    GNUrag, you read man pages!! Your mentor and guide Dr. Nagarjun suggested a better alternative last time. I thought you would be using that!! :D

    BTW, what was the alternative? I forgot. Please tell me.

    ya ya ya .... i meant info pages

    # info fstab

    But then, info first checks its info pages database, if no match is found, it checks man pages database...
