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.
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 ....
Okay, I'll try that. Thank you so much for all your help! I really needed it!
