    hi,
    I got linux and windows xp installed on same pc but on different hard disk.

    Both hard disks are connected, i got linux installed on hard disk 1 and xp installed on hard disk 2.

    when i work in linux, i want to see files on other hard disk ie. windows files.

    Is this possible????

    Thanksss

    Rajesh

    U can mount windows XP partns by making a folder in /mnt/.edit ur /etc/fstab
    and add the entry for automatic mounting @ bootup.but in ntfs type partn are readonly permissions as of now,though captive-ntfs soltn is available.
    if ur using redhat/fedora u need to get ntfs rpms from http://www.linux-ntfs.org/content/view/19/37/
    Code:
    suryan:/home/prakash# mkdir /mnt/win_C
    suryan:/home/prakash# mount /dev/hdx /mnt/win_C
    ie; mounted
    suryan:/home/prakash# vim /etc/fstab
    /dev/sda1       /mnt/win_C      ntfs    ro,umask=0222   0       0
    
    Best of LUX
