Please note the spaces. Also, '/mnt' is a mount point where it is common to
mount all "other" drives, like CD-ROM, etc.
Also, you can log in as root and use the LinuxConfig utility from the Gnome
System menu. It would be best to have a reference book nearby when doing
Another posted responded saying that it is "risky to edit or delete one OS's
files from another OS. It's safe to copy into the active OS space, but risky
to copy to another OS's disk space." I don't agree _entirely_ with that, but
you should avoid opening or moving files created in Windows when you are in
Linux. The file naming systems are very different. However, I create files
in Linux and save them to a FAT16 drive all the time, and never have
trouble. I just keep my Linux work in a separate directory from the Windows
stuff so they don't get mixed up.

Need some help mounting my NTFS partition.
I have this configuration:
I am booting off the FAT16 for win95 and winNT.
The NTFS partition is an extended partition for
winNT. The ntfs option was compiled into a 2.2.10
kernel. When I tried to mount the drive I
recieved a comment about the partition being an
extended partition and asked if I wish to mount
it. I have no idea how to give the command flags
to mount an extended partition that is NTFS
formated. Nor did I see any comments on how to
handle it. I would appreciate any help.
