    Drives are unmounted?


    Okay, I rebooted into Mandriva last night on my dual boot system, and tried to access my NTFS windows partition and my FAT 32 partition. They are no longer being recognized by mandriva! What do I do to fix it? I try to mount them, but it tells me I have to be root, and then I do su - root and try it that way, and it still won't mount them. Any ideas? Also, when I installed Mandriva, it did not make itself a swap file. How do I get it to make one? Oh yeah, I think it might make a difference that I was in windows and had a power failure. Could that affect it?
