    Be very careful with this

    What you need to do is create a mount point for your ntfs partiion, select it and then click edit.

    In the bottom right, where it says "mount"

    create a mount point, for example

    /windows

    You will need to log out and back in for kde to display the mount point in "my computer"

    nope it dont works,

    its interessting because in all other distros which i tried mounts ntfs file system automatically.

    do i have to something install ? like samba server or any support for ntfs?

    Try this:

    Type in terminal for root:
    Code:
    su
    Then (you can change to whichever directory you'd like):
    Code:
    mkdir /Windows
    Then (replace /dev/sda1 to the path of your ntfs partition):
    Code:
    mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /Windows
    You may have to install "ntfs-3g", I THINK

    If you want it to automount, as a non-root user run (kde):
    Code:
    kdesu kwrite /etc/fstab
    gnome:
    Code:
    gnomesu gedit /etc/fstab
    then add a line at the bottom:
    Code:
    /dev/sda1        /Windows      auto      defaults     0   0
    Save it and reboot.

    Hope this helps!

    hi again

    i have mounted windows dtive. but now. I am wondering how can i give permission to no root user?

    i tried as root to change group of folder:
    "chgrp users windows"
    and it gives me:
    chgrp: changing group of 'windows' : Read-only file system

    so any ideas what to do?

    and second question is how can i unmout this drive?

    ntfs-3g Great little prog !

    Why would you want to change the permission to "no root" ? Apart from the fact that I think it will be impossible and rightly so.

    To unmount use: umount /dev/xyz
