    NIce one, sdousley. That was just what I was looking for. You've made a frustrated Linux n00b very happy...

    And, hello all, I've just started messing with Fedora 3, on an XP/Linux dual-boot machine. I will be hanging around and asking all sorts of tiresome questions I expect.

    May I be so bold as to ask you another question?

    The drive I have mounted contains all my data that is accessed from WInXp.

    The idea is to be able to access all data from both O/Ss. As this drive holds both mine and the girlfriend's 'My Documents' folder (I shall wash my mouth out at once!), is there a way to set up these folders as part of our respective /home directories in Linux? i.e.. if I go to my /home directory then I see 'My Documents' as a sub-directory, and vice versa?

    ok I added the line to the fstab file so now it looks like this:

    Code:
    # This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
    LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
    none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
    none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
    none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
    none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
    /dev/hdc                /media/cdrecorder       auto    pamconsole,exec,noauto,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t,managed 0 0
    /dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows vfat umask=0000,dmask=0000,uid=0002,gid=users,users  0 0
    does this look ok? I don't want to kill my system (again )

    It worked for me Dave. My mount was a little different (/mnt/<my target>) but you should be OK, from what I can tell

    munkster, if u want the mydocs to appear in /home/my docs, u would (ideally) need them on a seperate partition in *cough*windows*cough*

    Then u just need to mount that partition to /home/mydocs.

    Personally, i just have all my windows partitions mounted in /mnt/windows/

    so i have:
    Code:
    /mnt/windows/c
    /mnt/windows/d
    /mnt/windows/e
    /mnt/windows/f
    /mnt/windows/g
    /mnt/windows/h
    /mnt/windows/z
    I have reasons for that many partitions. Just seperated apps from work from my dogs from vids etc.

    So in *cough*windows*cough* i hit my docs, it goes to the 'g' partition so in linux i hit /mnt/windows/g and there's the my docs root folder

    hmmm well it kinda worked it does mount on startup. but i can't write to some seemingly random directories. C:/program files and C:/ Documents and settings/dave/my documents, but i can write to the desktop.

    so its a little weird, but it will work for what i need.
