    Fedora Core 3 and NTFS Paritions


    Since I installed Fedora Core 3 it can see my XP Drive 1. Fedora is loaded on Drive 2. Is there a way in Fedora to turn off Drive one??Here's what I see.

    Under Hardware Browser it sees dev/hda1. But under Disk Management it sees.

    /dev/fdo /media/floppy auto
    /dev/fdc /media/cdrom auto
    /dev/fdd /media/cdrecorder auto
    none /sys sysfs
    none /proc proc
    none /dev/shm tmpfs
    none /dev/pts devpts
    label=/boot /boot ext3

    Any Suggestions?

    I want to make sure I understand your question correctly.

    You dont want to see your hd1 (windows partition)
    when you are logued into feudora is that right?

    ok good
    go into
    etc/
    get the file named FSTAB
    in this file, you will see the hd1
    you can either delete the line or simply comment the line

    Here's the problem I've seen this file and I can't see where to edit it.

    This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
    LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/hdd /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
    /dev/hdc /media/cdrom auto pamconsole,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

    Can you see it.

    harley51 Im a little confused...
    the detail of the fstab doesnt appear to show any hda1...

    are you actually able to see the NTFS partition
    execpt in /dev

    Now that you mention it. Your right Fedora doesn't see it but Windows XP added another drive since Fedora Core 3 was added. So Windows is seeing the parition that it didn't see before. I guess the question is where do we go from here. Because this only came to light since Core 3?

    it depends what type was used to install your core 3
    if its a filesystem like
    FAT/FAT32 its obvious it sees it

    unfortunatly ... im a noob :P lol
    I would suppose fat32 is the best when using cross platform setup
    other wise im sure there a native linux filesystem that may be better
