    Mapping hard disk drives in Windows to Linux


    Hi ppl,

    I have installed Fedora 8 in my Dell laptop... Now my question is how do you map the disk drives in windows to the fedora 8. I have 4 drives in Windows(C, D, E, F)... I like these four drives to be viewed and modified using Linux also. What is the solution?

    In order to mount (read / write) ntfs file systems I use ntfs-3g.

    I have never had any problems using it.

    mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/device /mnt/mountpoint

    Open Terminal and execute this
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    df -h
    Post output here.

    * Its small L in sudo fdisk -l.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Well, you can figure out devices and mount points, which is where I would expect the post above is headed, or you can be sure to label the partitions, like 'system', 'games', 'work', etc. Then those labels will show up when you select 'Computer' from 'places' in gnome, or I expect some similiar place in your gui. Click and they automount and you can explore them.
