    Some Confusions In Linux , Need Help


    hii there,
    I have some new problems or confusions here , so please reply

    1) where can i see or operate the partitions? , if i attach another HDD with linux HDD, as i made a dual boot system .HDD1 contains RHEL4 and its partitions and HDD2 contains XP and its partitions(which are all in NTFS) .so,how can i comunicate or transfer data between both of my OS ?
    i can't see any of my xp partitions in linux , not even in /media or /etc/fstab ,i can just see them only in system tools/hardware browser , which is useless

    2) My internet speed is fixed at 60 kb per sec while i am using win XP ,never exceed from 60 kb/sec , but its going real fast in linux , i am getting above 700 kb/sec in linux , what must b the reason behind that? , is it restricted in win xp to 60kb/sec? well i am using WAN not LAN , there are over 12000 users on my network and every body get no more then 60 kb/sec (majority of them are on win)

    3) which is the best download manager in linux ? , like IDM in xp , which can make around 16 connections while downloading a single file

    to answer number 2 first,
    there are ways to limit speed, and if you have a very bad administrator, (s)he can do it by setting a limit on each and every machine, but if they dont set it on linux, you wont be capped. that's my guess, i'm not verry good with NT so i cant help you there.

    number one,
    by default RHEL cant access NTFS partitians, do a search on linux-ntfs.org, or google "linux ntfs".

    i have no idea for DL managers, but i script alot using wget. if you want a gui, i think gnome has like gwget or something like that. it MIGHT suit your needs, i dont know.

    You have to mount Windows OS partitions. Execute fdisk -l command and post output here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Install ntfs-3g package using Package Manager of RHEL. Create mount_point ( folder ) for each partition.
    Code:
    su -
    cd /media
    mkdir hdc1 hdc5 hdc6 hdc7 hdc8
    Add this code in /etc/fstab file
    Code:
    /dev/hdc1  /media/hdc1  ntfs-3g   defaults,umask=0  0 0
    /dev/hdc5  /media/hdc5  ntfs-3g   defaults,umask=0  0 0
    /dev/hdc6  /media/hdc6  ntfs-3g   defaults,umask=0  0 0
    /dev/hdc7  /media/hdc7  ntfs-3g   defaults,umask=0  0 0
    /dev/hdc8  /media/hdc8  ntfs-3g   defaults,umask=0  0 0
    Save file and execute mount -a command Or reboot machine. Check /media/hda1, 5, 6, 7 and 8 folders. All users will have read/write access in those.

    many packages have dependency's. FUSE is a package that is required by NTFS-3g. i believe that RHEL4 had some means for package resolution, but i know it doesn't have yum installed by default .....

    basicaly, you have to install FUSE first, unfortunatly, it may require another package.
