    i believe something was wrong with the cds that came with the book " red hat linux 9 bible" by christopher negus.

    because the applet was occasionally crashing in gnome....

    anyways i used the redhat 9 cds i downloaded and burned

    i reinstalled minimal red hat 9 and apart from 5000 gb of / and 11700 gb of /home

    i made /opt of 2048mb of vfat

    now i came across some issues

    before in my last installation of redhat 9 i made 20gb of fat32 from windows xp.

    this time i was using red hat's partitioning tool during installation.

    it did not allow me to create a vfat partition of more than 2048 mega bytes.

    anyways i only did 2048 mb of vfat partition and had to mount it. so i mounted it as /opt.

    it showed up in windows xp and going back into red hat linux the fdisk also worked

    [for a tester, in windowsxp i copied couple of mp3 into that vfat partition]

    i tried to view it with nautilus and then tried to play the files from that vfat partition

    it did not work

    1) how the damn i can access files from vfat partition ????????????????????????

    2) if we want to check out what files a hard disk/partition has how can we view it ????
