SubjectRe: mounting NTFS

seems fishy to mount an ntfs filesystem in
/mnt/msdos
:-)

NTFS needs to be supported by kernel to work.
do : "cat /proc/filesystems"
it should look like this, at least for the NTFS line :
~$ cat /proc/filesystems
nodev
rootfs
nodev
bdev
nodev
proc
nodev
sockfs
nodev
tmpfs
nodev
shm
nodev
pipefs
nodev
binfmt_misc
ext2
minix
msdos
vfat
iso9660
nodev
smbfs
ntfs
nodev
autofs
reiserfs
nodev
devpts
xfs
nodev
usbdevfs

If it doesn't, either you have to load the NTFS module :
"modprobe ntfs" should do the trick, or compile it directly
into your kernel, if you know how to do.

BTW write support for NTFS is dangerous, only works
(barely) for NT4 volumes, not W2K. You can read
from NTFS safely though.
