Re: mount windows partition automaticly

It depends if the windows filesystem is vfat (win95, win98, winME) or ntfs (win2k or winxp)

here is what I have in my fstab file

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/daten vfat umask=0 0 0
/dev/hdb5 /mnt/datab vfat umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/winxp ntfs ro,umask=0 0 0

I think they are even automounted itself (you would have to add noauto in fstab if you don't want something to get automounted I think).
But you have to create manually a directory with the name /mnt/winxp (or in your case /mnt/windows) first

I don't know either if /dev/discs/disc0/part1 would be better instead of /dev/hda1...

But at least it works! smile

[damir@Asteraceae /]$ more /etc/fstab | grep WINDATA 
/dev/discs/disc0/part5 /WINDATA vfat rw,users,noauto 0 0

hope that gives you a start ... see also the manpage and the docs :-)
