shared linux/windows fstab help
I'm new to linux and i have four questions
I'm not sure how to configure my fstab in order to allow both windows and linux access a shared partition. What should I put in my fstab to allow a certain partition (which has the FAT32 filesystem) to be read/written by both windows and linux.
What do i put in fstab for my windows partition? If anything?
I have included in my kernel configuration support for NTFS filesystem and NTFS writing. Does this mean I will be able to access, read and write data on my windows partition? Do i need to configure anything in fstab or otherwise to do this? (I was/am under the impression linux was unable to write to nfts)
for the 'dump' field in fstab for my boot partition, should it be 0? or 1?
this is what my fstab looks like now: (if anyone can help point out errors or fill in the _blanks_ that would be great)
/dev/sda1 ____ NTFS noatime _ _ (windows partition)
/dev/sda2 /boot ext3 noatime _ _ (boot partition)
/dev/sda3 none swap sw 0 0 (swap partition)
/dev/sda5 / ext3 noatime _ _ (root partition)
/dev/sda6 /mnt/data ___ ______ _ _ (shared win/linux)
/dev/dvdrom /mnt/dvd auto ________ 0 0
(*sda4 is my extended partition containing 5,6)
i recently found a mount option called unmask 000, not quite sure how to use it? and will it give access to the partition from anyone who can see my computer on the network?
