I wasn't sure where to ask this, so I figured the Newbie Corner was probably the best option.
I am trying to mount my NTFS partition, and I'm not sure how to do it. How do you do this?
Most probably: mount -t ntfs mount_device mount_point (for example mount -t ntfs /dev/discs/disc0/part1 /mnt/win). Or an appropriate entry in fstab. It'd all be read only though. To write you could try CaptiveNTFS.
ps. Have never used ntfs, so all of this is theoretical from my side :-)

Here is my fstab for windows ntfs that I copied out of my suse system -Its worked fine for me in Arch. Be sure to create a folder /windows/C (you dont need to have the C) under the root (/) folder so it has a place to store it, other wise it'll never work.
/dev/discs/discX/partY /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002
why not use /mnt/windows ? - that seems much more right to me.
Either way works fine, just a matter of personal preference. I like it in root because its always mounted by default unlike the others and there's one less step to get to it. It's suse's default setup if it make you feel anybetter.
