    Cool how do i mount a drive that rhl7.3 can w2k can both see

    I learning rh 7.3.
    i figured out out how to run w2k and rh 7.3 on the same box.
    i have w2k on a ntfs partition and linux on the other, i have the third partition as fat32, how do i mnt that fat32 partition so that i can use it w/ linux and w2k?

    I am sure that w2k mounted it automatically.

    In linux:
    cd mnt
    mkdir shared
    mount -t VFAT /dev/hda4/ /mnt/shared

    where hda4 is whatever partion the fat32 partion is....
    you can also have it automount.

    w2k did see it right off the bat....

    is the double / / suppose to be in there?

    so the cmd line would look like this..

    mount -t VFAT /dev/crack-kills/mnt/shared

    thank you

    Ok, first of all, it isn't VFAT, it's vfat. If it still doesn't work, try replacing vfat with msdos. That'll work but you won't be able to see long file names. Also, to check which partition is the FAT32 type in the following command.
    fdisk -l
    You'll see a list of all the partitions on your system. Look for the one that says FAT or FAT32 or VFAT and then substitute it for hda4 in
    mount -t vfat /dev/hda4/ /mnt/shared
    Also it is / / (Note the space between the 2 /'s) and not just /
    Cheers,

    EDIT: You might also have to make the directory /mnt/shared . You can do it like so
    mkdir /mnt/shared
