If the installer did not auto detect your partitions, an easy way would be to type

Code:
mkdir /mnt/winc
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/winc

/dev/hda1 will generally be your C drive, to see which all partitions correspond to windows drives, type "fdisk -p".

However, in this way, the partitions will not be auto mounted every time you start up your OS ...

It should auto detect the file system, if it can recognise it. But yes, if you know the filesystem of the partition, using the -t option in good.

Try to understand the following configuration of mine(Breezy). Its fairly simple. Just nano your fstab to something equivalent :).

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda6 /boot ext3 defaults 0 2
/dev/hda8 /home ext3 defaults 0 2
/dev/hdb1 /media/hdb1 vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb10 /media/hdb10 vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb11 /media/hdb11 ntfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb5 /media/hdb5 vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb6 /media/hdb6 ntfs auto,owner,exec,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdb7 /media/hdb7 vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb8 /media/hdb8 ntfs auto,owner,exec,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdb9 /media/hdb9 vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 /opt ext3 defaults 0 2
/dev/hda7 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0

Two of the NTFS Drives are accessible by users :) I play mp3 files from those windows NTFS partitions.
AMAROK RULES.

Ever considered moving to reiserfs? You are seriously missing lots of performance by using ext3 instead of reiserfs.

Yes a front end of Xine..
Not just of Xine...
amaroK supports 7 backends and xine is just one of them. you should try amaroK with gstreamer instead of xine. you will get the best experience.

For installing KDE in ubuntu.

1. Open Synaptic Package Manager
2. Click reload
3. Select KDE Desktop Environment from the list on Left Tab
4. Check kde-core on right. You can also select many packages you need like kde-multimedia, kde-network etc.,
5. Click Apply.
6. Enjoy!!!

Ya Xine is one of the backends.I mainly use it with Gstreamer and the output as esd in Hoary.
