AoA

I dont know about cable net problem. mr Faraz.Fazil or farhanksa are authorities on this, i am sure they`ll help u out.

As far as accessing windows partitions is concerned. it just a simple mount command explained clearly in lots of posts. may be your are not giving the right drive letter in that command. check ur drive letters and do it the proper way. i hope u wont find any difficulties.

Good Day
Testing?What's that? If it compiles, its good, if it boots up it is perfect.

AoA

There are lots of posts on that single mount command..

u can mount it by typing:

mount -t vfat /dev/hdc1 /mnt/ (for FAT partition)

this will mount ur C drive to /mnt/ directory. If u want, u can create another directory in /mnt/, for example lets say u create a directory with name "cdrive" in /mnt/. This way the command u will enter is :

mount -t vfat /dev/hdc1 /mnt/cdrive (for Fat partitions)

if u have NTFS as C`s filesystem, u may enter the following command to mount it

mount -t ntfs /dev/hdc1 /mnt/cdrive (for NTFS partitions)

Note:
1. u can only read , if u mount an ntfs parition, u dont have write access there.

2. the 'hdc1' thing in command shows the number of ur drive to be mounted. ur C drive (most probably) has number 1, thats y i wrote 'hdc1'.
in my system my D drive has number 5, to mount that i write 'hdc5'. check ur number of relative drives
Testing?What's that? If it compiles, its good, if it boots up it is perfect.

1.For mounting your windows partitions in linux:

I think i am explaining this the 15 th time here.
WHy didnt u search the forum before posting?
There are 15 posts that explain this simple stuff.

Now anywayz, keepin you in mind,

1.First of all obtain the /dev/hd# location of the partition you want to access.

To do this in terminal give this command:

fdisk -l

It will show u all the partitions with their information including their /dev/hda number

Note the information of the partition u want to mount.

2.The next step is to create a mount point where the partition will be mounted.

TO do this issue this command:

cd /mnt
mkdir wincdrive

3.Now its time to finally mount the partition.

To mount a fat/fat32 drive:
--------------------
mount -t vfat /dev/HDANUMBER mountpoint

for example:

mount -t vfat /dev/hda4 /mnt/wincdrive

or in simple terminology:

mount(space)-t(space)vfat(space)/dev/hda4(space)/mnt/windrive

Replace (space) with an empty space by pressing the spacebar key on the keyboard..

The HDANUMBER , as i explained earlier is obtianed from fdisk -l
--------------------

To mount an ntfs partition:
-----------------------

Also for ntfs mounting, u may need to recompile your kernel and include ntfs support..as some distros donot include ntfs support by default...but most distros do indeed include fat/fat32 stable read/write mount support by default.

ALso ntfs support is only available as read only in most kernels even if u recompiled it...write support was experimental.

Full Read/Write stable support is now included in 2.6.0-test5 and onwards.

anywayz this command is used to mount ntfs partitions:

mount -t ntfs HDANUMBER MOUNTPOINT

e.g

mount -t ntfs /dev/hda4 /mnt/wincdrive

4.To access the partition, browse to /mnt/wincdrive thru the file manager or through the terminal.

I hope its clear enough.


This question relating to mounting fat/fat32/ntfs partitions has already been answered/explained in detail in many posts before.

Why dont people search the forum at linuxpakistan.net/forum2x/search.php before asking questions?

http://www.linuxpakistan.net/forum2x/vi ... ight=mount
http://www.linuxpakistan.net/forum2x/vi ... ight=mount
http://www.linuxpakistan.net/forum2x/vi ... ight=mount

2.For your cable net query

First of all u need to set up and configure your lan card in linux.
Once that is done, u need to set the network settings.
Post your scenario in detail,post the make and model of your lan card, the method your desi cable walla uses etc and search the forum first.
Linux for Life!
