Strange behaviour non-linux partitions: HELP



Hi all,

About a week ago Michael Schwendt helped me out after I used qtparted to create a FAT32 partition on my disk, which damaged my configuration. I had to change my grub.conf, the fstab etc.... (could not boot anymore). After that everything seems to work fine again, but...

now some problems come up with my non-linux partitions: I mount them (also have the NTFS-driver installed), see them but...

I don't see "normal" windows files on it (for example /dev/hda2 is my WinXP boot partition, working fine, /dev/hda10 contains some file I placed there with fedora, before the "crash")
The strange thing is: on the "non-linux" drives (both the NTFS and the VFAT ones) I see only the files that really are on /dev/hda9.
To be honest: /dev/hda9 indeed is the new VFAT-partition I created with qtparted, causing the "crash"

The WinXP installation still works fine and I placed a partition-specific named, empty text-file on each partition, using WinXP.
The file on /dev/hda9 (called g-30.txt (G:-drive on windows, 30Gb) is shown on /dev/hda2, dev/hda5, dev/hda10 and /dev/hda11 as the only file (which is correct for /dev/hda9, is is the first and only file on it)
So it seems that the drives are no longer (as it was before the crash) correctly "mapped"

So I think something more has gone wrong then I have repaired, following Michael Schwendt's instructions (thanks again Michael!!)

This is my disk:

fdisk -l output:

	Partition table entries are not in disk order


This is /etc/fstab:

So this is the output of mount -l:

	none on /proc type proc (rw)
	none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
	none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)

	/dev/hda6 on /boot type ext3 (rw) [/boot]
	none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
	/dev/hda2 on /mnt/windows type ntfs (ro,umask=000)
	/dev/hda5 on /mnt/windows type ntfs (ro,umask=000)
	/dev/hda9 on /mnt/windows type vfat (rw,umask=000)
	/dev/hda10 on /mnt/windows type vfat (rw,umask=000)
	/dev/hda11 on /mnt/windows type vfat (rw,umask=000)
	sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)

Can anybody help me out?
