    How to detect NTFS partition


    I have 2 hard disk. One is C: and one is D:
    C: hard drive is where i make my partition for windows (30GB) and Linux (10GB). Right now, i cannot detect the windows partition.

    Example, all my mp3's and mpg videos are in the windows partition. I want to access my mp3's and mpg when i boot in Fedora. But when i'm in Fedora, i cannot access the windows partition. How to detect my NTFS partition? I'm using Fedora Core 3.

    Open the konsole, become root, and type
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    Then you will see all the partitions on the drive, and their file system types. Mount the one(s) with NTFS, if they aren't already mounted. Be sure you specify a mount point.

    For some reason Fedora doesn't come with NTFS read support (writing ins't well supported yet). You can get RPMs at http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/. Enter uname -r to get your kernel version.
