I had windows 2000 installed and made a dualboot with Mandrake 6.0
But Mandrake can't find my windows disk.
The disk uses ntfs instead of fat32.
Is Mandrake 6.0 not able to read ntfs, because it's to new (ntfs i mean, not mandrake)?
And if that's so, which version can?

You will need to recompile the kernel to add NTFS support most likely.

If it is a temporary NTFS read that you will need get Knoppix @ http://www.knoppix.org/ , as the latest version has very good NTFS support.

If it is a fixed NTFS reading you need , I recommend upgrading to a more recent version of Linux or FreeBSD, as early NTFS support in non-windows OS's has been a bumpy road.

Knoppix has great NTFS support. . . . captive NTFS. As far as I know its the only way to get read/write on BTFS through linux.

:idea: You dont need knoppix to use it, any distro will do. Get info here: http://www.jankratochvil.net/project/captive/

hi Freakyp......
Redhat also support NTFS. for that you have to rebuilt the kernal and enable with NTFS support. or else try changing configuration in /etc/fstab. instead od putting mount as 'auto' put NTFS.
