How can I find out where my NTFS partition is (like dev/hd1 etc), and how can I then mount it to be accessed in Ubuntu,

I'm an Ubuntu n00b, so consider that when answering.

if you want to take a quick look

in the terminal:

sudo fdisk -l

this lists the partitions.

then  write

sudo gedit /etc/fstab

it should look like this:

Kod:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda3       /               reiserfs notail          0       1
/dev/hda5       /arsiv          reiserfs defaults        0       2
/dev/hda6       /home           reiserfs defaults        0       2
/dev/hda1       /media/hda1     ntfs    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda2       /media/hda2     vfat    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda7       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hdd        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0


if hda1 is ntfs then change it like this:

/dev/hda1       /media/hda1     ntfs    ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002, 0 0

i hope it helps.

"/dev/hda1       /media/hda1     ntfs    ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002, 0 0 "  line makes your ntfs partition readable. its not writable because it's risky and ubuntu doesn't support it. you might create a fat32 partition on windows and share it with ubuntu.

I type in sudo fdisk-l and I get:

/dev/sda1   *           1       24310   195270043+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2           24311       30259    47785342+  83  Linux
/dev/sda3           30260       30515     2056320    5  Extended
/dev/sda5           30260       30515     2056288+  82  Linux swap / Solaris

sda1 isn't listed in /etc/fstab

Ah I've done it. I modified /etc/fstab to the following:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# /dev/sda2
UUID=cc62f22f-6b98-4fcb-87f7-8da607cc26f1 /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /dev/sda5
UUID=0670ff67-a861-4f9b-a4cf-acd9103a9431 none            swap    sw              0       0

/dev/sda1       /media/windows    ntfs    ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002, 0 0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/hdd        /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/           /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0

I already created a mount point called Windows.

Thank you!
