view Windows from Linux
I'm on my way to bed, so instead of searching Google I figured I'd just post a question here.
I've been running Mandrake 9.1 and was able to access my windows c:\ and d:\ where all my mp3's and picture files are, but as usual I messed somthing up and had to reinstall Linux.
I don't know what I did on my first install, but on this install I am no longer able to mount my windows partitions..... everything else is working fine. Any ideas?

Tried doing it manually?
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/vfat
your windows partition should then be viewable under /mnt/vfat

In RH you would need to check your /etc/fstab file to make sure it was listed there, then you could mount it manually, or load it in your during boot in rc.local.
what Win operating system ( file system ) are you using ??
