    one mourning i went to get a file from /windows/c(dev/hda1) and it was not there(in konquorer)howerer in command line the /windows/c directory was present,and useable. the dirve is mounted as dev/hda1...
    in KDE (kdiskfree)however it dose not show as mounted, and when i try to mount it i get the message:
    Code:
    Called: mount /dev/hda1
    mount: /dev/hda1 already mounted or /windows/C busy
    mount: according to mtab, /dev/hda1 is already mounted on /windows/C
    I am just lost.... i'm thinking a permissions thing ie: could i of hidden it somehow? In konquorer the /windows directory is empty...no /c
