Re: Mounting NTFS

You can also make NTFS to be mounted during boot by adding the
following line to the end of the /etc/fstab file:

     /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

It occurred to me lately that nothing has occurred to me lately.

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.



It sounds like a good plan. I just wanted to point out that the other posting where one option was to add an entry to /etc/fstab

I never tried adding the entry to the fstab file or put loading instructions within rc.local since I hardly need to access the files on XP. It is handy to have ntfs-3g handy though for cases where I do need to get or put files between the two operating systems. The read-only ntfs driver was not as valuable since it could not put files on the Windows OS.
