i have redhat 7.2 and windowsME both installed on my machine. <i am a linux newbie >
i decided to try and make my windows files available on linux. i went to mount the drive w/ this
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t vfat -o,ro

this worked at school, i did it at home and i got this:

mount: cannot mount block device /dev/hda1 read-only

so can any linux guru explain how to get around this. how can hda1 be read only, i dont get it.

thank you in advance to anyone that helps.
