Before you buy.
Create a directory, say dosc, to mount the DOS partition in
Mount the Windows partition (assumed here to be the first
partition - hda1) with
mount -tvfat /dev/hda1 /dosc
Now you can use cp or your favorite file manager to copy to
your heart's content.
Incidentally type vfat is FAT32 (probably needed for the
Win98 partition), type msdos is FAT16 or FAT12.

Add a line like:
/dev/hda1 /WinC vfat umask=000 0 0
To your /etc/fstab file, create the mount point and issue a mount
command 'mount /WinC' (only need to do this manually the first time --
this will happen automagically at every reboot from now on).
Now your entire C: drive is available under /WinC/.

Not quite. "msdos" support includes FAT32 now, or at least I can mountQuote:>Incidentally type vfat is FAT32 (probably needed for the
