    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

    Exceed,
    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

    Check out this page... http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/index.html
    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
