RE: File transfers between linux and windows?



It would be the directory you want to mount your windows/linux share in. It
could be anywhere in the system ie.. '/home/usename/win-lin' just make the
directory and then set your partition up in windows. Be fore you mount it
run fdisk to make sure you know the partition number then run the mount. I
you have a slave drive on the primary channel and you partition was the 3rd
primary on the drive it would look like this:
mount -t vfat /dev/hdb3 /home/username/win-lin

Hi,

Thanks so much for your reply.

>mount -t vfat /dev/hd'whatever' /mnt/'some-name'

I'm a little bit confused about this though.  How do you know what the 
'some-name' is?  Thanks...

Eric
