    mount windows drive

    Hello,
    I am trying to see my windows drive from ubuntu.
    I found this article:

    http://www.reallylinux.com/docs/toptip3.shtml

    However when I run
    root@ubuntu:/home/laptop# mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/win

    I get this.
    mount: special device /dev/hda1 does not exist

    Is there something else I have to do?

    Is there a better way of doing this?

    thanks

    IF you run
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    You will see the drives are sda1, sda2 etc. They used to be hda for IDE and sda for SCSI (not sure about early SATA) but several years ago they consolidated the driver and all hard drives in Ubuntu are sda etc.

    If you want to permanently mount it, you can add an entry to fstab,

    Ownership and permissions of vfat / ntfs are set at the time of mounting. This is often a source of confusion.
