    just mount it, then access it. e.g. mount -t somefs_type where some_mountpoint etc.... read man mount for more info.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    thanks a lot for the tips. now i can access my local ntfs drives.

    what i need to do now is to move the contents of the local drive off to a host over the network.

    but the live cd doesnt seem to have ftp or the like that i can use to move files. i cant add another drive to copy files to.

    how do you copy files over the network when i dont have nfs or ftp?

    Are you using the Gentoo LiveCD for this?

    You might take a look into Knoppix or some such thing that has more applications. I'm sure that Knoppix has FTP, and it probably has NFS as well.

    Try samba. If you want to send the files to a windows machine then just mount the share using samba. If you want to send the files to a linux computer then just setup a share using sambe and then mount to it. Also you might want to try scp or rcp. Do a man on them to see if the live cd has them and also to learn how to use them.
