    Mount windows partition in linux?

    Can I mount my windows partition in LInux so that I can get to everything I have saved on there? I'm pretty sur eyou can but don't kow the command and I can't search for it because everything list commands by the command name. There is no list that offers you to look by the action and not the command.


    thnx

    mount -t vfat -o umask=000 /dev/hdxx /mnt/windows
    mount -t ntfs -o umask=000,ro /dev/hdxx /mnt/windows

    Should do the trick.

    When I tried that it says the windows does not exist. Is there another label it might be?

    as problemchild said: mount -t vfat -o umask=000 /dev/hdxx /mnt/windows (ntfs for ntfs partition...)
    and in /dev/hdxx you have to put instead of xx the number of the IDE hard drive. e.g. /dev/hda1 for first ide and so on.
    this error message appears if you put in xx the wrong number...
    in /etc/fstab are all partitions listed look in there if you are not sure...

    You also have to create a directory called windows in /mnt like so:
    mkdir /mnt/windows
    You have to run this before the first time you use the mount command.
