For some reason, I can no longer mount the Windoze drive! The first time I mounted it, I didn't even change the fstab! I just issued the command: mount_ntfs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win and it mounted! I copied off everything I thought I needed. But when I tried to go back in, that didn't work. So I added the line suggested below to /etc/fstab and I still can't mount it! Rebooting doesn't help. What am I missing? TIA, Drew

Assuming your windows partition is ad0s1 mount_ntfs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win fstab entry: /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win ntfs ro,noauto 0 0 You can then copy stuff, for example: cp /mnt/win/Documents\ and\ Settings/carpetsmoker/Desktop ~/ If you want read support, you might want to try ntfsprogs (sysutils/ntfsprogs), which has some basic (EXPERIMENTAL!) read support. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" ____________________________________________________________________________________ Never miss an email again!
