How to Mount Win98 Partition?

Post by Larr » Sun, 18 Jun 2000 04:00:00



I have RH 6.0 installed on a dual-boot machine with a Win98 partition.  I
set up a mount point of /win98 and can see it when I log into linux.
However I can't figure out how to mount the partition as read-only.

This is a FAT32 partition.

Thanks for any advice,
Larry

mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /win98

No need to mount it read-only; Linux can read and write FAT32 without
problems and has been able to for a long time.  You *can* mount it
read-only by adding a "-o ro" to the end of that command line, or by
modifying /etc/fstab so that "ro" is in the options field for that
mountpoint.  man fstab and man mount for more details.
