Re: Mounting Fat 32 (Windows) directory in FC2

Using vfat as the filesystem only works if the filesystem is truly fat/fat32. Is the filesystem possibly NTFS?

Thank you for the suggestion but, alas, it did not
solve the problem. It still won't automatically mount
the windows drive in gnome (I can still do it as root)
and in KDE I can't do it at all.

I have the following in my fstab:

and a group called "windows", which contains all the
users that I want to be able to write to the Windows partition. I
originally had this in RH7.3 (8.0, 9, FC1) and it still works now in FC2, so it
seems pretty future proof :)

Of course, you would have to change hdb1 to match
whatever yours is, and remember to create a "windows" group with your
username in it...
