Dear Geeks,

I newly installed Fedora Core 4 on my laptop and I am quite satisfied.
The only problem is that FC4 doesn`t automount my NTFS partition, because it doesn`t appear in /etc/fstab.

Do you have any idea what I have to alter in this file?
Many thanks and kind regards,
Christopher

Insert
Code:
/dev/hda1       /mnt/C  ntfs    user,gid=users,umask=0002,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0

where /dev/hda1 is your ntfs partition and /mnt/C is your mountpoint. You can also play with your mountoptions, but these work for me on a SuSE 9.3 machine

The actual application is captive-ntfs although this not being developed any further. Windows XP SP2 actually breaks captive-ntfs but there is a work around published by O'Reillty Net. You can also try the packages from Knoppix and its' bretheren Live CD/DVDs.

Hope this helps!
