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.
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

nevermind about my last post, i thought you were referring to the name of the drive
but that is in windows.....duuuhh
how do i figure out what i found out what the fat32 partition is?
also how would automount it?

i tried mounting it but i got and error messaging saying that
vfat is not supported by this kernel. is there anything that i can do?

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.
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
Also it is / / (Note the space between the 2 /'s) and not just /
mount -t vfat /dev/hda4/ /mnt/shared
EDIT: You might also have to make the directory /mnt/shared . You can do it like so

i did try it w/ the VFAT orginally thats when i got the VFAT not supported by kernal
ill try substituing VFAT w/ msdos
i already have the /mnt/shared/ made
