[SOLVED] Mounting Problems
May I ask for some help on how to make my Mandriva partition mount sda5 w/c is my storage bin partition? My xp/Mint/Fedora can access the sda5 but it seems that Mandriva does not allow it as easy.
I hope the following data can help
Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0xc5e3f820 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 1913 15366141 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda2 1914 30260 227697277+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA) /dev/sda3 30261 30401 1132582+ 12 Compaq diagnostics /dev/sda5 1914 21054 153750051 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda6 23034 23188 1245006 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda7 21978 23033 8482288+ 83 Linux /dev/sda8 21055 21977 7413966 83 Linux /dev/sda9 23189 30260 56805808+ 83 Linux Partition table entries are not in disk order [root@localhost ~]#

Thanks a lot!

> mount NTFS partition under linus
NTFS is not a native linux filesystem type. I recommend installing
the suite "ntfstools" that includes a command like this
"ntfsmount /dev/sda5 /mnt"the sun is new every day (heraclitus)

Thanks. I just got the problem solved just now when I googled the error message and it lead me to a site
"cannot get volume.fstype.alternative" Error | Mandriva Forum

Then click "Mount". When you quit the app you'll be prompted if you want to "save the modifications to /etc/fstab" select yes. (you might need to log out > log in or reboot the machine).
