    Mounting from Linux to Windows


    I have a bunch of files in my Windows partition, and wouldn't care that much to start stuffing them to CDs or Floppies. I understand it's possible to make a mount to different partitions. How is this done general?

    You can also use fstab and add en entry for your windows partition(s) so that you can mount them easily.

    fstab is read and interpreted on startup and does basically what I described automatically. You might want to try my method first, looking for suitable directory names/partitions, then, when you have found all you need, make the fstab entries to have it all done on Linux boot.

    I would just like to add that adding the entry to your fstab doesn't automatically mount your windows partition(s) upon boot, unless you specify them to be automounted...

    Otherways just do as realnowhereman says, and you're good to go...
