Fedora Core 5 - using an NTFS drive

Posted on 2006-04-08

I used to have Windows running on my machine, and I decided to go with Linux instead, so I reformatted my C: drive and installed Fedora Core 5 on it.

I have a D: drive also that was used, and its an NTFS partition that I was using when I was running Windows as a default system.  

Is there any way to read the files from my D: drive now that I have FC5 running?  I can't think of another possible way to get files off of that drive - and I don't want to see an 80 gig drive just sit there unused, plus I need to get files off of it.  Is there a command that I can issue that mounts the drive and allows me to read it?

    OK - got it to work - do you know how I can execute this command to mount the drive at boot time?
