I am running Red Hat 7.2 and Win XP Pro on a dual boot machine. I know how to mount my windows partition in Red Hat I would just like to have it do it automatically on boot. Could someone let me know how?
As root, you need to edit your fstab located in /etc/ so that it auto-mounts. Yours should look something like this:
<pre>/dev/hda1 /windows/windows_c vfat defaults,user,noauto</pre><p>You need to change the "noauto" to just "auto", reboot and that partition should now be automatically mounted.
yeah, listen to what poorboy said...if it's NTFS, you'd only want to make the partition read-only because writing to NTFS is just too dangerous (but you'd have to recompile the kernel so that wouldn't be a problem anyway).
I was to partition my drive with a FAT 32 system shared between the OSes would I be able to partition it and change the disk format using Partition Magic 7, or would my files be deleted in the repartitioning and changing the format?
I crossed the line into insanity so long ago I no longer have any idea which way to go to get further from the line.
