    Stupid Newbie Question on Mounting

    I just installed Fedora Core1 and the whole concept of mounting and the files system both confuse me a bit... I've got XP running on my second hdd and I suppose what I'd like to do ultimately is get the files I need off of it somehow, and after that wipe it and format it with Fedora...Or something like that... Anyone think they can explain some of this to me?

    Alright, I put in the following..
    mount -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /home/exceed/Windows
    And then got this...
    mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel

    there is NO such thing as a stupid question, only stupid answers.

    have fun doing your /etc/fstab stuff and/or playing with mount /dev/hda? /mnt/windoze


    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS

    Check out this page...
    You need to install the kernel module rpm and then go thru all of the mounting steps.

    They have a very good step by step guide here meant for Fedora.

    Good Luck
