Greetings Eric ,


In /etc/fstab you put the partitions that you want to be mounted on boot .

So first of all backup your /etc/fstab file .
Then open it with your favourite editor ( use a console and NEVER A GUI )
and add a couple of lines that would look like the ones below

/dev/hda1	/WinNTFSpartition	NTFS	 defaults 	0 0
/dev/hda5	/WinFAT32partition	FAT32	defaults       0 0

Now just save the file and reboot , such changes can't be applied
without a reboot .

That's all .


Kind Regards,

Is the amount of spacing between the items on the line arbitrary? Should
it be spaces rather than a tab?

Doesn't matter as long as there *is* space between the fields.

I'm not sure about the filesystem type being in upper case though; I've only ever seen them in lower case (vfat, ntfs etc.) before.

Note that Fedora does not support NTFS filesystems "out of the box".
