Newb here for starters...just wanted to get that out of the way to avoid any awkward confrontations later. I just installed suse on my notebook to replace another distro and am having a few issues.

The first is accessing my Windows XP partition. Right now I have done nothing but failed miserably in my attempts, resulting in two folders (one in the /media folder and another in the root (/) folder). If anyone could help me get rid of those, that would be great. They came about after failed attempts to edit the fstab.

Also, once this issue is resolved, I would like to have my opensuse firefox use the windows firefox profile on the ntfs drive. I've tried numerous times to get this done on ubuntu and have never managed to get it to work.

Any guidance would be appreciated.
