Fairly new to the forums. I just wanted to know if there is a way to mount windows partitions in Opensuse 11.1 GNOME. In fedora 9, i was able to mount NTFS partions quite easily by default. All i had to do was to add myself to the root group. Not so simple here. Plus, i can’t mount my flash drive
Can you guys help me out? (please i ask for no quarelling. I know soo many people have this already but I don’t see how to do it properly.)
Hopefully, this could be a sticky
Did you try Yast>Partitioner?

Not required in either fedora or openSUSE.
Thanks, I will try it when i get home.
Umm, i’m not sure what you mean by using the partioner in yast??
You can use it also for creating and managing mount points.
If you enter the Partitioner in Yast, READ READ READ, and you will see the Windows partition, but no mountpoint. Click the partition, pick Edit, and add /windows/C as mountpoint. Click OK OK OK, and you will see your Windows partition.
OK, i saw the mounts in partioner. The thing is, the drive is already mounted. I can see the information and read it fine. but its not r/w.
I’m trying to use the help found on the link above.
I got it. thanks AndreasStieger for the links above.
i just changed fstab options and rebooted. it worked like a charm.
i guess for those who don’t how: *vi /etc/fstab *. Then modify the options. if u are unfamilar with vi, you have to press ‘i’ to insert and press ‘esc’ when you are done. to save the changes type ‘:wq’.
Thanks again :D**
