I will leave the line in my rc.local file for now as it seems to be
working and I can free up some space on the ntfs partition. in a week or
two I will have a go at my fstab file. This install of FC6 was a look
and tinker install. I,m almost ready to start using FC6 for most of my
day to day pc use. There is only two things stopping me from dumping m$
permanently and they are:
1, Playing Command & Conquer Generals Zero hour!
2,the voip software only has a windoz version and I have 2 1/2 months of
credit left on it to go. Its one of the cheapest voip services around
that I have found so far. Free international land line phone calls. I
have a 250Gb hard drive in this box. About 80Gb for FC6 the rest for
windoz. I plan to shrink the ntfs partition down to about 20/30 Gb just
to run Generals on from time to time.
