i havent installed Linux 9. (i assume its
RedHat) so try to check if you have enable the
kernel for ntfs support.. u may want to check
/lib/modules/[kernel_version]/fs if you have a
ntfs... if you dont have one recompile your
kernel and do-t ntfs option on mount.. though
you can only read and not write on it.. its very
dangerous to write.. unless data in it are
disposable... good luck

Hello

Download the appropriate rpm that matches your kernel version and RedHat release from this link.

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html

Log in as root and

install the rpm with

rpm -ivh

Install the module using insmod ntfs.o. Also, edit your rc.local and add the line insmod ntfs.

Create a mount point...

mkdir /mnt/ntfs

mount your ntfs volume

mount -t ntfs /dev/hdxn /mnt/ntfs or add an entry in /etc/fstab

Prakash.

kinda makes you want to start sharing off the Linux box, doesn't it. It shares to just about every kind of pc network ever created.

#mount -t nfs /dev/hda1 /mnt

Note : this is right if your win2K is on the first partition of your first IDE drive

Just as a goof, try looking in your /mnt directory for a windows folder. Both Redhat 9 and Mandrake 9 like to include NTFS support by default. For example, on my dual-boot WinXP/Mandrake9.1 box, the NTFS partition was mounted to /mnt/windows automatically.
