Windows HD on Linux machine for backup of Laptop
I just installed Mandriva free on a computer that I was not using. I have two hard drives on this computer. I have never used Linux extensively. The first is about 50 GB and is fully dedicated to linux. The second is 120 GB and was taken out of an external enclosure that I have been using to backup my laptop that runs XP (therefore it is formatted in XP). I am using KDE and GNOME as my environment.
I would like to allow my laptop to backup (using Acronis 8 ) over the network to the 120GB drive in the Linux computer (but keep it windows formatted). The problem is that for some reason the 120GB drive is write protected. I have tried modifying the attributes on the drive and it pops up with a message saying that I do not have the privilages to do this even though I am logged in as root. I have even modified it with the hardware advisor program (HardDrake or something like that) to make it writable but nothing works. I expect it is something small that I am missing somewhere, and would really appreicate any help you could offer!
