    Cannot make a directory


    I have just installed mandriva on my computer as a 2nd OS with XP. I want to be able to access windows directory's and files from the HD on linux. I looked up how to mount the drive, but when i go to make a directory in Konsole i get, "cannot mkdir - - Permission Denied"

    I dont understand when i'm getting this messege, is there admin options i need to configure??

    You'll need root permission to create that directory.

    Hi !!

    on terminal type this command

    $ su - ( its minus/hyphen sign )
    enter root password

    create directory and mount filesystem.....
    edit /etc/fstab file for automatic mounting on startup.....



    .... casper ....
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
