    I think you can't or at least should NOT mount anything in /dev , can you post the commands you used to mount ?

    I did it during installation where it gives the disk format indicators.
    I highlighted each windows partition & clicked on mount & when I checked they were mounted in the /dev/c_drive & /dev/d_drive folders as I named them

    post the output of 'fdisk -l' and 'df -h' commands.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    according to df -h output of 'df -h' only hde5 and hde7 are mounted.
    create mount_point ( folder ) for each partition and add entries in /etc/fstab file.
    e.g. for partition hde1
    Code:
    mkdir /media/win_c
    add this line in /etc/fstab file
    Code:
    /dev/hde1  /media/win_c  ntfs  defaults,umask=0 0 0
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
