    (its title )
    you can't access Linux partitions in Windows. you can use third party package to do that. check this.....

    plug-in both disks and boot up Linux. you can mount windows partitions through 'mount' command. you can read/write in FAT32 partitions. RH9 does NOT support NTFS. for reading/copying data from NTFS partitions, download and install ntfs patch from www.linux-ntfs.org
    patch file's name should be same as of RH9's kernel version. check kernel version through 'uname -a'

    i dont know much about modem's driver installation. i hope someone will post about that soon.

    Hi,

    Linux cannot see ntfs filesystems, but can read fat32 filesystems, have a second partition formatted for fat32 and transfer the files you want in linux to it.

    Then when you boot up linux, you can see whatever you put on the fat32 partition.

    all distro, except RH/FC, can see NTFS partitions..... for RH/FC, you have to install ntfs patch.

    Thanks Kiwijor and Casper for your comments.


    Actually, i have two partitions on Vista and both are formatted with NTFS
    well, Casper, could you please tell me where is that patch located exactly and after dowenloading, do i have to run that patch on Vista or Linux?

    please give me your comments and also do tell me which modem either external or internal of which company will work on Linux ? i am really frustrated.

    Thanks a lot for helping me out in resolving this dilemma.


    i really appreciate it.

    to accessing Linux Partitions from Windows, download fs-driver from this site and install it in Windows.

    to access Windows from Linux, download ntfs pacth from www.linux-ntfs.org and install it in Linux.
    type this command in terminal

    uname -a

    this will show the kernel version. download ntfs patch having same name as of kernel version. OR post the output of 'uname -a' command. i will post the link of file.
