hello, as I am a new user to linux. I got a question, now I have just download a linux file to my windows 98, as it's too big to hold into my diskette, I want to mount from linux and copy it to my Redhat 6.1. My question is, how can I mount the hard drive (Windows 98), that means what is the command for mount the hardisk.

Hi Ahchong!

1. create a directory in the /mnt/ directory called DOS

2. go to the /etc directory

3. open the fstab file in any text editor like vi.

4. add the following line there

/dev/hda1  /mnt/DOS     msdos   defaults,rw  0 0
save the file.

5. type mount -a at the $ prompt.
this will mount all the unmounted file systems.

6. change directory to /mnt/DOS
Here you will see all the dos file under C:\>
move to the desired directory and mv and cp information as you wish.
All the best and give points if this works.  :))

In step 4 above, replace "msdos" with "vfat", or you won't be able to see/use long file names.

This assumes that the primary partition on your HD is c:. Change that as necessary.
hd?
? = a -> primary master
      b -> primary slave, ||ly, c and d.

hda? 1 Primary partition on the HD. (1 -4 are primaries, 5 onwards are secondaries).
