Posted on 2002-07-20

I have 20 Gb Hard Disk, equally partitioned into 4 segments. Windows XP resides on C: and Linux Red Hat 7.2 on D: while E: and F: are for mp3s and video songs plus backups.

C:, E:, F:(All Fat32)
D: (Converted to ex2/3 dont remember while linux installation)

Now how to make all the C:, E: and F: available under linux? Is there any way that I can do that permanently?

As I am a novice user of Linux, so please explain it in detail.... also the possible error and their handeling.

Thank you.

ok
the best way to access ur windows partion is go to the console(i hope u know this which is like command prompt).then type su(no need if u login as root)after typing su enter the roots password.
then issue the folloeing commands

$mkdir /mnt/ur_dir(ur_dir means in this place u can type ur liking directory for example i made ur_dir u can make /mnt/win_c)
then
$mount -t vfat /dev/hda6 /mnt/ur_dir

this
is something confusing which drive u want to mount u should know its number
suppose i am having c: d: e: f: drives
as hda1 becomes c: drive know d: drive i am using for linux so hda5 will be linux (after 1 5 why?because primary partions can be 4 that why)so e: becomes hda6 similarly f: hda7 so depending on u r requiremnets mount hda 6 or 7.


IF U HAVE ANY QUETIONS SEND THEM BACK
