Well, mine works. For example, coral# cd /dos coral# mkdir f coral# mkdir g coral# mount_ntfs /dev/ad0s5 /dos/f coral# mount_ntfs /dev/ad0s6 /dos/g A df shows /dev/ad0s5 6144830 3412718 2732112 56% /dos/f /dev/ad0s6 6144830 5251974 892856 85% /dos/g These 2 logical partitions are both ntfs; however, if they were fat, I would have used mount_msdos. The extended partition for XP is the second with FreeeBSD installed in the 3rd primary. /dev/ad0s3a 248047 62258 165946 27% / Kent -- Kent Stewart Richland, WA http://users.owt.com/kstewart/index.html _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
