I have two Partion on my hard disk. One is windows XP and another is Linux(Fedora). And I can't access the file Of XP through Linux. I tried to mount the drive by doing as follows.
/etc/fstab

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c ntfs ro, users,exec,uid=500,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0
But my hadware browser showed me that my NTFS partition is named as hdb1. I tried by typing it too.
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/win_c ntfs ro, users,exec,uid=500,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0
 
and i again downloaded the kernel for NTFS from http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/

But nothing worked what should i do.
And i downloaded the sm56 Motorolla driver from the net and installed it but again it didn't work too. I just can't figure out what should i do. I am a newbie in Linux. i have explored a lot about it on net and some books about linux. But I never could comfigure my modem. Plzzz help

lets see what these commands say, they wil help us sort out the disc issue:

fdisk -l

this will give us a list of your partitions, and we can go from there.  Did you install the correct RPM from the site for your kernel?

uanme -r

will tell us your kernel version, and we can double check you have the correct RPM for your kernel version.  What error are you currently getting when you try to mount it as you have your fstab file?  You know that after adding the link to /etc/fstab you need to make sure your mount point exists
mkdir /mnt/win_c
and then mount it
mount /mnt/win_c

Your modem is a seperate issue altogether.  What kind of modem is it?

(Remember, be as specific as you can, the more detail you give the less likley we will have to ask more questions to get down to the answer)

My kernel version for Fedora is
2.4.22-1.2115.nptl on an i686
I didn't get the exact rpm but i installed the 2.4.22-1.2149.nptl.


I ran fdisk -i and i got the following results

Device       Boot       Start           End              Blocks       ID    System
/dev/hdb1   *             1             525             4217031       7     HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hdb2               526             1016            3943957+      83    LINUX
/dev/hdb3               1017            1048            257040        82    LINUX swap

How can i uninstall the .rpm ,So i can get the exact version and install. which version should i install if i don't get the exact one.


My Modem is Motorolla sm56 PCI and i have downloaded the driver for sm56 but i can't configure the modem still.

NTFS:
rpm -q kernel-ntfs

will tell you the version. Then

rpm -e kernel-ntfs

will remove it.  After that you can install the correct one you download with

rpm -Uvh kernel-ntfs*.rpm

your mount line in
/etc/fstab
should be fine, although I don't ever user the iocharset=iso8859-1 option

Modem:
what driver did you download? where did you get it? and how did you install it?
