i will be really thankful if someone could help me out in this problem.
I installed fedora core recently, I have win Xp home installed already. I used parition magic to partition my hard drive. i partitioned 55 Gb to 20GB and 35GB. Installed Linux in that 35GB, while installing i made 7GB as root partiton and another 1Gb swap and 10 Gb (named "/home") for my data,s so total 18GB, rest 17Gb i kept for windows. Now when i am booting into windows i cannot see that partition. Moreover there are four partiton in Linux, named as Hard Disk[/], Hard Disk(hda5)[/],Hard Disk(hda6)[/home],Hard Disk[/home],Hard Disk[/var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs]
I really dont know what happend? I am new to Linux. Also when i am trying to acess Disk[/] it gives me the following error "mount: according to mtab, /dev/hda5 is already mounted on /
Please check that the disk is entered correctly."
But no problem accesing Hard Disk(hda5)[/]. Same error message for Hard Disk[/home] and no problem accesing Hard Disk(hda6)[/home].
One more thing i notice is Hard Disk[/], Hard Disk(hda5)[/] have same contents. Same with Hard Disk(hda6)[/home],Hard Disk[/home], they also have same contents.
i will appreciate the help. Please help me out, i am a newbie in Linux.

thanks in advance.
