I wonder if someone could suggest what I should do.
I dual-boot win2k and SuSE 9.0 off two partitions on the same HD.
For whatever reason, SuSE 9.0 did not create an entry for my win2k
partition in fstab, so it doesn't mount automatically. I've been trying
to add an entry to fstab so that the win2k files will mount themsleves,
but with no luck.
If I create an entry in fstab of
/dev/hda1 /windows ntfs
ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=iso8859-1 0 0
then a desktop icon to /dev/hda1 controlled by SuSE plugger pops up next
time I reboot, but if I click on it I am told.
mount: mount point /windows does not exist
Which indeed turns out to be true. Maybe I'm entering the wrong fstab
I've tried manually creating the mount point using YaST's disk
partitioner instead of fstab but no dice. It runs through the whole
procedure and tells me everything's been changed, but if I close Yast
and reopen it again, I find that no changes have been made.
What should I do to get this partition to mount in the usual way, as my
Win2k partition did when I was using trusty SuSE 8.2 which set the whole
thing up on first install and I never needed to alter it again?
