    NTFS Compilation


    Here's the thing, I have already compiled the NTFS support in the Kernet, but everytime I restart Linux, I have to do the whole process over again with the "/mnt/Windows/ /dev/hda1..." Is this natural? Or is there a better way around getting to my windows drives? THanks.

    Yes, that is natural.

    which distro are you using?

    you can put the mount command into one of your startup files

    Or you can add the drives in /etc/fstab

    man fstab

    The easiest way to do this is to edit your /etc/fstab (as Kriss mentioned) to include the partitions that you want mounted at boot.
