    Accessing NTFS volumes & USB Flash Memory from Linux !


    Hi ...

    I can't seem to find a way to access my NTFS volumes . I have a single Physical HDD with both XP & Red Hat Linux 9.0 .

    I also need an easy way to access my USB flash memory . This is a very easy job under XP !

    In general , is there a Windows-like explorer which would provide access to the Hard Disk , Floppy , CD-ROM and USB drives in a graphical manner ?

    Thanks

    I fact , after many failed attempts , I have finally managed to install Linux on my PC after trying different partitioning plans .

    This is why I am posting this problem on the other channel !

    I needed to know what are the installation requirements of Linux as regarder to the partition type .

    So my question is as simple as follows :

    Doe's Linux need a Primary or a Secondary Partition ( under XP terms ) ?

    Thanks
