Red Hat Linux 8.0 Issues

By Kilgareth ·
I have installed a Red Hat Linux 8.0 on a separated harddrive and boot it on my computer with 64MB Ram Agp & 128MB Ram & Creative sound blaster live. I cannot play any videos or Mp3s it just crashes. With version 7.1 I could do that. What must I do?
The Other Question is How then Do I access my other harddrive with music & videos residing on the same machine but have Windows XP pro & 2000 pro as operating systems, with an NTFS files system.

As far as mp3's are concerned. Red-Hat didn't include support for playing them in version 8.0. download
http://staff.xmms.org/priv/redhat8/xmms-mpg123-1.2.7-13.i386.rpm
then do
rpm -i xmms-mpg123-1.2.7-13.i386.rpm
This should enable you to play mp3s. If not, check out xmms.org FAQ page. There are a lot of helpful ideas there.

To mount your windows partition do
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda4 /mnt/windows
make sure the directory /mnt/windows exists, or make it, then replace the /dev/hda4 with the device of the NTFS partition. Then you're all set.

Good luck.
