With regard to mounting a dos partition, I've found
that this is possible in RH5.0 if the dos partition
shows up as type '6' when using fdisk to view the
This works great to transfer files from DOS -> LINUX.
When going the other way, I note that DOS does not
see the linux files I copy into the mounted DOS partition.
Don't know why yet.
I have however found that by having a dummy file that
was created in DOS located in the mountable dos
partition, that I can get text across from Linux -> Dos
by reading the linux file into the dummy file that was
created while in DOS.
Wierd that I should have to, but that seems the case
and since it works, I'm not griping. But there just
has to be a better way.
In answer to your question though, IMHO, mounting
being able to copy directly from one OS to the other
is the easiest. In my example though, it just takes
some trickery when going from linux to dos.
Have a nice day.
